Two days of geo-goodness at FOSDEM 31/1 - 1/2

You may already know that there is a great lineup for the geospatial devroom at FOSDEM on synday: yes, we actually have 22 presenters from a large number of different countries (even outside Europe!).

Full schedule here.
But apart from the lineup on Sunday, also Saterday actually has a number of interesting geo-related talks as well:

10:35 - 10:55 (distributions devroom)
 12:00 - 12:50 (hardware track)

14:00 - 14:25 (graph devroom)
15:00 - 15:50 (hardware track)
And I'm sure you will probably find many other interesting presentations in one of the other 550 lectures. So hope to see many of you at FOSDEM!

I noted there is another geo-related talk on Sunday, unfortunately in parallel with the program for the geospatial devroom:
