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.

What is your IDE?
This was an input filed:
Aptana, Eclipse, TextMate,BBedit,Coda, Dreamweaver and more as you can see here.
Why I need that?
I am part of Mozilla’s JetPack community and I am researching how to make our life easier by creating plugins and snippets (maybe debuggers) for most popular IDE’s in the #JS world in order to allow rapid development of Firefox Addons using AddonSDK (a.k.a JetPack).
You can see my prototype here and version 0.2 here.
Can I help?
Of course you can. If you know how to write plugins for any IDE or if you have any other idea how we can make our life easier – please drop me a note here or on identi.ca nor twitter
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 NOR Open Source – you must be there.
