FreeCAD at FOSDEM 2015

Postby yorik » Wed Jan 07, 2015 12:27 am

Guys, I'm still waiting for the last confirmation, but apparently I'll be giving a talk about FreeCAD at the FOSDEM in Brussels this year!
It's at the end of january (still not sure of the exact day), so I thought better to annouce it as soon as possible.
If anyone of you is close to Brussels and wants to go, it would be awesome to gather around a beer!

Hey Yorik, that's great! I regret not to live near Brussels now.. :cry:

I hope instead that there will be video recording of the session - this I think would be very interesting for everybody, we can include the direct link to the video in this case.

Have a nice speech!

Ciao
Enrico

Looks like an interesting weekend. Eurostar have an offer on train fairs at the moment that seems quite reasonable. Anybody know of anywhere cheap to stay

Out of curiosity I just looked up Qantas, they have flights from as cheap as just a bit over A$2000.00 return. That's very cheap when you think that's from Sydney Australia to London to Brussels (or via Dubia). Sydney to London is 24.5 hours fly time (they refuel once somewhere on the way). When you think about it, 2 grand to fly all that way is pretty cheap really.

Very interesting speeches, unfortunately way too high-level for my noob programming skills.

@yorik: I noticed Björn Balazs presentation @FOSDEM.
Is it the same balazs posting for example here ?
If yes, already two FreeCADers there ... :D

@keithsloan: since I live in Germany i checked AMEROPA-Homepage (Travel Agency linked with German Railway) and
Spar-Mit (they offer packages including stay and sightseeing).
Often they mentioned Best Western County House as a good hotel.
Rates start with 79 Euros per stay.
You decide if that is cheap ... :)

Unfortunately I cannot offer you hospitality, since I'll be staying at friends myself over the WE... But they have this page on the fosdem site:
https://fosdem.org/2015/practical/accommodation/ all the hostels I know in Brussels are there...
also check airbnb https://www.airbnb.com/ which everybody loves nowadays :)

I don't think so. Out balazs claims to be from Hungary on his github page.

It looked like a nice presentation, from what little I could see. The stream was rather poor and broken and had to use VLC and watch in .flv format. :cry: There were no streams available for the embedded player. Must of had more than a few watching. :)

It would be nice if someone captured or recorded it and posts it up some time soon.

I did see the mini mob gather around Yorik at the end. That's most always a sign you did well.
