Coworking spaces in Brussels for Fosdem

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.

Barack Obama got me busted

I just got this email from Barack Obama :)

Behold, you are reading a letter from the President Barack Obama USA. Finally, I have received lists of the names of people that are involved in money laundry and terrorism which your name is among the names that was submitted to me and I have ordered to release arrest warrant to the IPA to quickly carry out their duty and make sure that they get you arrested and summon you to the court immediately which they will be on their duty on Thursday morning as assigned since you are trying to play ball with me.

You have failed to comply with them after all the warning and instructions given to you, but since you are also among the terrorist we are facing in the country, I will personal make sure that I wipe away the crime in the state and I promise you that you will definitely pay with your life because I am here to protect the interest of my people and not to put them in shame, you suppose to support this government and not to spoil it.

Since it has been confirmed by Benin Republic government that this fund actually belongs to you and here the law demands that it cannot be release to you unless you provide the certificate which is OWNERSHIP And DRUG CERTIFICATE that is what the IPA has been demanding for a very long time now. For your own good, I am giving you last chance today to tell me as the President why you have failed to provide the certificate and why do you fail the IPA that is working under my instruction which you know that once you disobey them you have disobeyed me as well.

Do note that if you failed to get back to this office within 24hours, you will be apprehended and charge to court immediately for involving in money laundry and terrorism and there you will see my face. You will only be free if you get back to my office by promising that you will provide the fee for the  certificate which will cost you only 100usd to obtain it within 48hours otherwise you will be in soup, BE WARNED!. I will advise you further on what to do once they hear from you in other to resolve this matter amicably. Contact  Mr Charles Mark So that He will provide you the certificate once you have send them fee.

FOSDEM 2015 – hotels, information and facts (updated)

If you are going to Fosdem 2015, here is some useful info.

Co-working spaces

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.

Beer?

Just visit this site. I highly recommend the pub crawl tour for just 15 euro.

 Food?

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

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.

Top 3 Useless Applications on Product Hunt – Batch One

I used to write more about the useful apps on Product Hunt or in my universe, but after talking to a couple of investors about the tendencies in the “modern” startup world, we all agreed that the percentage of useless apps is growing.

Another reason is that everybody is writing about and sharing all kinds of useful apps and I wanted to do something different. So behold, I give you this week’s useless app by Bogo index <- That’s copyrighted
