oVirt at FOSDEM 2014

There are a number of oVirt related activities during FOSDEM (the Free and Open Source Developers European Meeting) in Brussels, on February 1-2 2004.

First, there are a number of oVirt related presentations happening as part of the Virtualization and IaaS DevRoom. See details on sessions.

We will also have a stand for the project, and we would be happy to have oVirt community members come and help spread the love about oVirt there. Our stand will be in building K at level K1 (near the infodesk, between OpenStack and OpenShift).

Finally, we are going to meet up for some drinks on Saturday evening in Brussels. You are welcome to come along to the bar “Au bon vieux temps”, we’ll be there from about 19h30 onwards.
