There is just four weeks to go until the annual Free Software Developers' European Meeting (FOSDEM).

As with nearly any year, FOSDEM 2016 is to be packed with a ton of exciting talks and content. FOSDEM is taking place in Brussels this year from 30 to 31 January.

Among the main talks this year are about Cockpit, RocksDB, the future of ODF, and Rspamd, among others. In the "dev rooms" are many exciting Linux graphics talks, a EdgeBSD status report, the potential of Haiku becoming BSD, numerous desktop and distribution talks on many different subject matters, IoT, Lua, Go, an HTTP/2 update by Mozilla, the future of Firefox OS, and much more. That weekend is just jam packed full of interesting talks, as FOSDEM has become known for over the years.

Unfortunately due to a tight budget, I will be missing out again this year, but if you are able to be over in Brussels at the end of the month, I highly recommend checking out FOSDEM 2016. At least in recent years they have been more punctual about uploaded slides and videos, so will be providing some remote coverage of the interesting talks where possible.
