    3030
    31 FOSDEM is a two-day event organised by volunteers to promote the widespread use of free and open source software. Taking place in the beautiful city of Brussels (Belgium), FOSDEM is widely recognised as the best such conference in Europe. FOSDEM covers a wide spectrum of free and open source software projects, and offers a platform for people to collaborate. To this end, FOSDEM has set up developer rooms (devrooms) with network/internet connectivity and projectors where teams can meet and showcase their projects. Devrooms are a place for teams to discuss, hack and publicly present latest directions, lightning talks, news and discussions. Every year, FOSDEM hosts more than 5000 developers at the ULB Solbosch campus. Participation and attendance is totally free, though the organisers gratefully accept donations and sponsorship.

    35 The Microkernel devroom has been a part of each FOSDEM since its inception in 2012. It has become a sort of an institutionalized tradition since then. To this date 13 projects have participated in one way or another, delivering 40 talks and other contributions in total. The goal of the Microkernel devroom is to bring the various projects together and have them share ideas, cross-pollinate and socialize. Each year the devroom is organized by one of the projects based on a system of rotating presidency.

    39 It has become a tradition that the microkernel projects dine together somewhere in downtown Brussels after the devroom closes. The year 2016 will not be any different, so there is going to be a microkernel family dinner on Saturday night. The exact location and time will be specified later. Besides the microkernel family dinner on Saturday, there is going to be an official beer event organized by the FOSDEM staff on Friday night and lots of smaller beer events going on over the whole weekend organized by the various projects attending FOSDEM. Additionally, if you decide to bring your spouse along, FOSDEM traditionally provides a free sightseeing program for spouses, so it may be something to consider.
