Show your App/Hack your App -- Open showcase and hacking session

Please add to this list if you want to show an App or hack together on an App.

The Future -- Open Technical Planning Session

This will take place on Sunday from 14:00 till 17:30.

After a short overview of the various free stacks, libraries, compilers, tools and runtimes this session is mostly open discussion about what work remains to be done and how to integrate the various efforts better. Ideas for work items welcome.


It would be nice to have a place to meet each other and/or eat together on Saturday night (or before the conference on Friday night, or after on Sunday night). If you know Brussels please make a suggestion here.

Friday night meeting

A La Mort Subite - 7 rue Montagne aux Herbes Potageres (starting at 18:00 till late!)

Strongly recommended by importers, but also recommended in Fodor's "25 Best" for Brussels. They brew several of their own beers and have several trappist, abbey, and other Belgian beers on tap and in the bottle. Their website mentions that they serve sandwiches and omelets, but does not list a menu. Almost equidistant from Gare Centrale and DeBrouckere metro stops.

A La Mort Subite is a great place. It also has the advantage of being pretty big. If it doesn't work out there we can always make our way to the cafe next to T'Kelderke on the Grand Place -- it has lots of room upstairs.


Please add your name here if you are planning to come:
