On Saturday 4th February 2017 and Sunday 5th February 2017, the Free and Open Source Software Developers' European Meeting FOSDEM 2017 took place in Brussels, Belgium.
Naturally a Gentoo crowd was there; this page collected public information about our presence and helped with organizing stuff.

As last year we expect to announce a new livecd during FOSDEM 2017
The following is an hour-by-hour schedule of who is running the stand. The plan is to have always two devs present, with overlapping two-hour slots (i.e., 10h-12h, 12h-14h, ... and 9h-11h, 11h-13h, 13h-15h, ...) (At start and end there are shorter slots, but these obviously also involve build-up and teardown.)
|Hours||Developer 1||Developer 2||Developer 1||Developer 2|
We'll meet after the FOSDEM closing talk at the Gentoo booth ca. 18.15. No plans for concrete restaurant yet.
We'll meet (as every year) for the traditional Gentoo dinner on saturday evening. It will take place at Chez Léon's in the Centre of Brussels (near the Delirium's). Menu at €30.60 (B3, C2, E4 page 6); we will meet and leave together after the Distributions devroom closes at 18:55, in front of the lecture hall K.4.601 of that devroom.
