See you at FOSDEM?

Join NLnet Foundation at FOSDEM 2023 in Brussels (4–5 February 2023), meet up with representatives from interesting projects in person and check out interesting presentations of various projects funded by our grants.

After finding refuge in the virtual realm for its past two editions, the world’s largest gathering of free and open source software enthusiasts is back in Brussels! As always, this two day event is completely free for everyone to join, and you can come even at the last minute — no registration is required.

NLnet Foundation will be there — and we are happy to meet, listen and learn from you! Come join us for a drink and a chat during our NGI0 FOSDEM Meetup on Saturday February 4th at 14:00h in our Birds of a Feather session in UB2.147. Or ask us any questions you may want to ask during our NLnet FOSDEM office hour on Sunday February 5th at 11:00h (same location, UB2.147).

NLnet is proud to see many presentations of projects that were recently funded by its Next Generation Internet research and development grants. Here an overview:

Saturday

Sunday

If you are also a grantee and your talk is missing, let us know and we will happily add it!

Parallel to FOSDEM the OFFDEM unconference will be held at VSP. OFFDEM is an intersectional festival about collective practices and free technologies production with different types of activities. The event starts informally on Friday February 3rd and you can help tear down on Monday — and it includes live radio, working groups, nice food, music and plenty of party. And of course lots of time to meet each other and share transversal perspectives. NGI0 mentors APC, CCT and Petites Singularités are representing NGI Zero on site to answer any questions you may have about grant possibilities. More information about OFFDEM, including location, can be found on the OFFDEM Programme.

Coming to Brussels and want to have an early start? There are also events in the FOSDEM Fringe organised by or featuring projects we support, like the FOSS license and security compliance tools developers and users workshop organised by AboutCode, and the GUIX Days.
