FOSDEM 2008 will be held February 23-24th, 2008.

We will have a 1 table booth for Ubuntu, so we need some people (both Belgian and other) to populate this booth during the weekend. More volunteers who want to help = more free time for these volunteers to visit talks, so... please volunteer! Smile :-)

As this will be our 2 year birthday, maybe we can have a drink and/or food one evening too? Maybe together with Ubuntu people from other countries?


Stuff to show or distribute at FOSDEM:

  • 800 Ubuntu CDs (delivered to JanClaeys by Canonical)

  • Conference Pack: 4 T-shirts, 2 caps, some ballpoints, stickers, etc. (delivered to JanClaeys by Canonical)

  • Posters (with Dutch language slogan only for now?)
  • Flyers for the Flemish release party
  • can somebody make a slideshow that explains what a LoCoTeam does (maybe also ask other European LoCoTeams?)

  • ... what else will be available to sell and/or give away?


  • a network switch for our stand + UTP cables to interconnect the stands
  • power distribution strips (at least 2 power strips, including 1 with a long cable?)
    • JanClaeys can bring 1 short cable power strip

    • TomVB can bring 1 power strips and a wifi switch/router with 4 LAN ports
    • RoelHuybrechts can bring a 6-element power strip with a 3m (=long) cable

      • 3m is a short cable Wink ;) , but I'll try to bring a longer cable myself -- JanC

  • computers
    • JanClaeys can bring a laptop, an eID reader & a 20" TFT screen

    • WouterHorré can bring a laptop & a eID card reader & a power strip to power the laptop

    • TomVB will bring his XO laptop, but there's no guarantee it'll be running Ubuntu
      • we can try to put Ubuntu on it in the booth Wink ;-) (JanC)

    • RoelHuybrechts can bring a laptop

    • DJ one recent laptop (compiz,...)
  • projector (needs screen/white background)
    • RobVanDyck can bring one (Saturday), but we need something to project on. (not enough space, so I will not bring it)

      • JanC can bring a projection screen--but I think we won't have the required space for this (only 1 table!)
  • rubber bands for people who buy posters! (JanC)
  • DJ take the Ubuntu birthday Cake (better than the last year)

There will also be an Ubuntu-based multiseat computer in the hacker room.
