A re-post of a message by Claudio Ramirez, our good friend from the
Belgian (Flemish / Brussels) Perl Mongers. He invites us to give
presentations at FOSDEM 2012 ( http://www.fosdem.org/2012/ ) in
Brussels. This "Free and Open source Software Developers' European
Meeting will be held on February 4&5 in Brussels, Belgium, at the ULB
There is no entrance fee. The event has many conference talks, a
market with information about many open source products and projects,
and several dev rooms including a Perl dev room will be set up as we speak.
Soon, the deadlines for requesting a dev room and for submitting
talks will pass. If you are interested, please react. Send a
message to Claudio if you want to give a talk in the Perl dev room.
Please send a message to me if you want to assist at the Perl
booth. Liz Mattijsen and I will organise a Perl booth at the
information market in the main halls during FOSDEM. We will bring
along our library of Perl books, our camel Meeltje, a lot of Perl
brochures, flyers and goodies.
Thanks for your attention and hopefully we will meet at FOSDEM.

Subject: [Vlaanderen] FOSDEM 2012
** Writing in English because I am posting to both Belgian pm lists **
Next week is the deadline for the request of a dev room at FOSDEM 2012
(the first deadline on the calender):
2011-10-27: Deadline for devroom requests
2011-11-06: Deadline for main track talk requests
No deadline yet: Booth
So I have two questions:
1. Is it OK if I do the paperwork for the devroom?
The combination of full time work, PhD and young kids does not leave a
lot of time on my hands, so I need to be sure to have the support of
the Belgian mongers for the FOSDEM weekend.
2. The deadline for the main track is also pretty close. Can you
contact your Perl contacts to see if someone is interesting in giving
a talk in the *main* track of FOSDEM? The presence of Perl people may
be a convincing argument for people to talk on a non-Perl conference.
