Dear *,

Indeed, I really appreciated the talk from Gdk about Education and Open Source during the last edition of FOSDEM (’09), so I was a little bit disappointed to not have the same kind of talk this year. 😦

So now, the challenge will be to make it happen for FOSDEM’11. 😉

Dear *,

An unbelievable surprise!
As it was the first time JBos.org was present at FOSDEM, we did not expect to a such success.
The result was beyond our most optimistic expectations.
See by your self on the following pictures :

First and Second talk – Falko Menge and Heiko w. Rupp –

Third and fourth talk – Mark Proctor, Sabri – From the point the room was always FULL – ( THE BET WAS WON ! Congratulation jbug ! – Belgian Jboss User Group – )

Unfortunately I had not the possibility to attend for the other talks (JBoss ESB, Yoeri Roels). 😦

Thanks to jbug.be for helping me to make this happens – Joris, Jarom, etc..).
Thanks also to all speakers – Falko Menge, Heiko w. Rupp, Mark Proctor, Sabri Skhiri, Yoeri Roels

Rem: 30/40 attendees per session. Not so bad 😉

Spacewalk is a free and open source lifecycle management which provides
software management, provisioning and monitoring capabilities. The clean
