Dear EasyBuilders,

I wanted to share some highlights from last weekend's FOSDEM'18 open source meeting in Brussels (https://fosdem.org/2018/).
Just so you don't get bored over the weekend... ;-)

If you attended FOSDEM'18, feel free to mention additional talks you particularly liked that I overlooked...

The full set of 550+ talks (!) from FOSDEM'18 is available at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL_QKjHDgmNzpckLNciogFQ79csbL4JtzN .
