We will not have a devroom this year at FOSDEM ( ) because the organisers thought it would be 
honest to give it this year to the Python people.  Huh what?  Well, 
yeah, last year Perl did have a devroom and Python did not, so we 
decided to turn that around this year.


I applied again for a booth with 2 tables.  No response yet (decision 
will be made next week).  If we get the booth, the Dutch and Belgian 
Perl Mongers will be there.  Liz and I will be there with our camel 
and our library of Perl books.  And a lot of promotional 
material.  And several German Perl Mongers already promised to come as well.

Anyway...  Indeed, FOSDEM is a great place to show the greatness of 
Perl to other people.  FOSDEM is the largest open source event, even 
larger than OSCON.  Admission is free.
