We still have one slot free for whoever still wants to step up to the

Our DevRoom is not the same one we had for the previous years. We are
now located at H 2213. This is in the same building as the main fosdem
reception. Map: http://www.fosdem.org/2008/maps/campus
The DevRoom will be open on saturday from 14:00 through 19:00 and
sunday from 9:00(ish will most likely be closer to 10 :)) through 18:00
There will be seats, networking (which will hopefully be as good as last
year) and a few powerstrips so that hopefully nobody has to sit around
and twiddle their fingers because their batteries died. And there will
of course be interesting talks and likewise company :)
Alexandre is reserving some tables at a nearby restaurant for saturday
evening. This will most likely be for 20:00 at the same restaurant as
last year, but details will be announced either before saturday or on
As for friday, i guess most of us will eventually end up at the Delirium
Cafe [http://www.fosdem.org/2008/beerevent] Supper on friday will have
to be organised ad hoc.
