FOSDEM in Brussels

For the past few years SiT! developers and users have met at the FOSDEM (Free and Open Source Developers' European Meeting) conference in Belgium.

FOSDEM is the biggest free and non-commercial event organised by and for the community. Its goal is to provide Free and Open Source developers a place to meet. FOSDEM 2014 will be held February 1st and 2nd in Brussels, Belgium.


We've traditionally chosen to stay at NH Hotels city centre which is a nice hotel with good breakfast. Close to stores (for the ladies) and tram transit to the university where FOSDEM is located. They usually have a promotion called weekend extender which is a recommended choice. There are other hotels nearby that could be cheaper and/or better, there are also hotels that are closer either to the Uni. Campus where FOSDEM is located or to the city centre. NH City Centre is a good place to hang out with the SiT! community.
