Long lines and interesting discussions awaited the visitor at this year's FOSDEM event in Brussels, Belgium.

Apparently, not even the FOSDEM team can guess which topics will attract a large audience and which will not, despite many years of experience. The result: Long lines formed before some rooms at FOSDEM'17, the largest European FOSS community event, which was held in early February 2017.

The fast campus LAN closed the breach for those waiting in line this time, however. The organizers broadcast live streams of presentations from all rooms by building their own content delivery network, proving that FOSDEM is in good shape in terms of hardware. Many of the videos are now online [1].

Buses and trains were running again, in contrast with the previous year, but visitors seem to like FOSDEM the way it is – including the beer event on the evening before the headliner. The organizers can only roughly estimate the number of visitors (about 8,000) because they do not sell tickets.
