If you are heading to BXL for Fosdem and if you arrive earlier as I do you may need a coworking space. Thanks to twitter and some followers I got two nice hints I want to share with you. They both offer a free day for open source enthusiasts.
See you there: Beta cowork and Transforma BXL
P.S If you need hotel or information about Brussels, check out my post here.
If you are going to Fosdem 2015, here is some useful info.
Work together with other hackers in Brussels for free before and after Fosdem.
Hotels and Hostels
- Hotels near to Grand Place and to the Delirium Cafe. This location is near to all sights and it’s good idea to stay here instead near to the FOSDEM venue;
- Cheapest hotels in Brussels.
- Hotels near to the ULB – the venue
Personally I can recommend CitaDines apartments, because there is a small kitchen included into the price and you can make a dinner or breakfast. If you are more than 2 people, they can offer you a really great offer and it’s near to the bus stop for FOSDEM bus. At the moment they have “Up to 36% off ” offer. Go grab one.
Just visit this site. I highly recommend the pub crawl tour for just 15 euro.
There is no food in Brussels. :)
Free walking tour?
Yes, it’s available. Click here to learn more. It’s every day from 11 in the morning and 2 afternoon. Pre-booking is welcomed :)
FOSDEM is a free and non-commercial event organized by the community for the community. The goal is to provide Free Software and Open Source developers and communities a place to meet to:
- + Get in touch with other developers and projects;
- + Be informed about the latest developments in the Free Software and Open Source world;
- + Attend interesting talks and presentations held in large conference rooms by Free Software and Open Source project leaders and committers on various topics;
- + To promote the development and the benefits of Free Software and Open Source solutions.
- + and to SHARE knowledge with each other
Sharing the knowledge and ideas is the most valuable think you can get during FOSDEM and it’s free. There is no excuse not to be there.
If you are worried about anything, just feel free to ask me and I will help you, especially if this will be your first visit. If you are living for Free software or Open Source – you must be there.

I wrote an article, that can be found here about the new GitHub Issues, web development processes, using visual feedback and some facts about GitHub:[‘bigdata’,’github stats’,’xkcd comic ban’,’more”].
Actually I am using one old bug from input.mozilla.org project (a.k.a) Fjord. It’s a good 4 mins read full of useful stuff and fun.
If you are interested in the tool I am using to optimize your GitHub Issues processes, it is available for free for F(L)OSS projects from here, but you should read the article first.
