# About FOSDEM

From: https://fosdem.org/2020/about/
FOSDEM is a free and non-commercial event organised by the community,
for the community.
The goal is to provide free and open source software developers and
communities a place to meet to:

- get in touch with other developers and projects
- be informed about the latest developments in the free software world
- be informed about the latest developments in the open source world
- attend interesting talks and presentations on various topics by
project leaders and committers
- promote the development and benefits of free software and open
source solutions

Participation and attendance is totally free, though the organisers
gratefully accept donations and sponsorship.

# About the Kotlin DevRoom

The Kotlin DevRoom is a co-located conference-within-a-conference that
gives us the opportunity to come together and chat, hack, and share
stories about Kotlin usage in the FLOSS ecosystems.

The DevRoom will take place on Sunday, the 2nd of February 2020, at
ULB (Campus Solbosch - https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1632534522)

Join us to enjoy a full day of talks, demos, and interesting
discussions about Kotlin!
