Another year @ FOSDEM with the XWiki gang: Ludovic, Marius, Anca, Oana and Fabio!

This year though we succeeded in getting dev room (yeah!), a wiki dev room, that I co-organized with Quim Gil from Wikimedia and Jean-Macr Libs from tiki.org.

The XWiki project was lucky to have 6 talks:

It was a nice FOSDEM. We enjoyed Belgian waffles and French fries as usual (although I heard some enjoyed it a bit less than usual since they were on a low-carb diet emoticon_wink).

At the content level, the conference was slightly too low-tech for me, a Java developer. Lots of C/C++ guys and lots of stuff close to the hardware emoticon_wink Not that I don't think it's nice to do that, but rather that I can't participate much. There were some other tracks more of interest to me like the Java dev room (but I was stuck in the wiki dev room at the same time so couldn't join) and the Javascript dev room but this one was so full that it was near impossible to get in...

I'd personally love to see some more room/space given to open source in businesses for the future editions of FOSDEM.

With over 8000 participants it seems it was, once again, a very successful FOSDEM.

See you next year maybe!
