## About FOSDEM
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 and
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
Participation and attendance is totally free, though the organisers
gratefully accept donations and sponsorship.
## About the Kotlin DevRoom
