I have been getting stack of people asking the same question, so just to be clear – no I am not at FOSDEM this weekend. The hectic travel schedule demanded a weekend off, so FOSDEM had to suffer unfortunately. Next year, I promise. Oh, and don’t believe any lies that Edward Hervey may tell. Don’t […]
