Introduction

FOSDEM 2014 (the Free and Open Source Software Developers' Europe Meeting) will take place on Saturday, February 1 and Sunday, February 2, 2014 in Brussels, Belgium.

This year the XMPP Standards Foundation (XSF) will host the Realtime Lounge together with Jitsi. There will also be a few XMPP related talks in the IoT Dev room and Lightning Talks.

FOSDEM 2014 will be preceded by XMPP Summit 15. See there for details.

The XSF needs your help to make FOSDEM a success!
