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.

Getting involved in FOSDEM 2014

The XSF needs your help to make FOSDEM a success!

Help at the Realtime Lounge

This year, we will again have an enormous stand, together with Jitsi, called the Realtime Lounge. That needs filling with people! We're aiming to showcase exciting and inventive XMPP-based projects, and we need your help both to provide things to demo, and hang out answering questions from the crowd.

Also, please volunteer to spend some time at the lounge so that our hardworking volunteers can do things like eat lunch or catch some talks at the devroom! The lounge hours are 10:00-19:00 on Saturday and 10:00-17:00 on Sunday.


We are planning to host demonstrations at the lounge. If you would like to present a demo, please list it below.
