On 2023-02-04 and 2023-02-05, the Free and Open Source Software Developers' European Meeting FOSDEM 2023 will take place in Brussels, Belgium.

Naturally a Gentoo crowd will be there; the Gentoo stand has been confirmed in the meantime.

This page will collect public information about our presence, and help with organizing stuff.

Gentoo Stand

Gentoo will have a stand in building H, level 1 #9 (overview of all stands)

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.)
