FOSDEM is an event for software developers
to exchange ideas and promote collaboration.

Every year, thousands of free and open source software developers from all over the world gather at the free event in Brussels. You don't need to register. Just come along and join in!

The IARU R1, led by our President of Region 1 and many helping hands from Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and Austria, met each other for FOSDEM 2024. Andreas Spiess, HB9BLA, a well-known YouTube creator, immediately delved into the topics of OpenSource, MeshCom and SIP telephony without a central office with us. Saturday was quickly over and we were able to realize our plan to take part in the presentations on Sunday.

A tightly packed lecture program and an always overflowing lecture hall brought a lot of exciting things to the "Kopf-Log-Book" on Sunday:
