FOSDEM 2003 Support Operation
Brussels, Free and Open Source Software Developers' European Meeting,
February 8 and 9
The FOSDEM is a free and non-commercial event for the community
and organised by the community. To keep the event free, and
non-commercial, we think the best way to help funding the event is to
get support from the community on a voluntary basis. Therefore, FOSDEM
is now gratefully accepting financial donations from visitors. Generous
donators will get the chance to receive back packages corresponding to
the amounts contributed (T-shirts, free subscribptions to magazines,
O'Reilly books and pocket guides, ...).
Please see the website for more information:
The FOSDEM 2003 will host talks, tutorials, developers' rooms, and also
the Free Software Award ceremony with Richard Stallman.
The FOSDEM also published this week 3 interviews of speakers coming for
the "databases" track during the event:
- Bruce Momjian, PostgreSQL Core Developer:
- David Axmark, MySQL developer,
- Ann Harrison, Firebird,
FOSDEM 's goal is to provide Free and Open Source developers and
communities a place to go over the lastest developments in the Free and
Open Source arena and to promote the development and the benefits of
Free and Open Source solutions.
