On Saturday 3rd February and Sunday 4th February 2018, the Free and Open Source Software Developers' European Meeting FOSDEM 2018 takes place in Brussels, Belgium.
Naturally a Gentoo crowd is there; this page collected public information about our presence and helped with organizing stuff.
- We will have name tags for devs this year. Pick yours up at the booth. Thanks to dilfridge and Polynomial-C!
- The Saturday dinner was confirmed for 8pm at Chez Léon. Thanks to Xaviermiller!

Gentoo will have a stand at K1A-area (map and info to follow)
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.)
