The first weekend of February is approaching and, as every year for the past 22 years, many Free and Open Source Software enthusiasts will gather (virtually again due to the ongoing pandemic) at FOSDEM, one of the most important events where they can meet, share their ideas and collaborate. As you can see in the conference floor and schedule, talks are divided into main tracks and devrooms, in addition to several project and community virtual stands. The event will be streamed live from their own website and Matrix rooms will also be available for each of the tracks, devrooms and stands, where you will be able to discuss and ask questions to presenters.
Several Igalians will participate this year as speakers to talk about personal projects or the work they do at Igalia. All times below are in the Europe/Brussels time zone.
