FOSDEM 2015: MySQL and Friends Community Dinner!

As you may already be aware, FOSDEM and its wonderful MySQL and Friends track are once again descending upon the campus of the ULB in Brussels, Belgium. Logically, a traditional MySQL and Friends Community Dinner must follow! Signups for that dinner, on January 31, are now available, so be sure to get your tickets before they run out.

As 2015 heralds the 20th anniversary of MySQL, it stands to reason we would love to mark the occasion with our biggest and best edition yet!

FOSDEM 2015: MySQL and Friends Community DinnerWith the help of some wonderful sponsors, your hosts are looking forward to welcoming you for a night to remember. As such, brace yourselves for a feast prepared for the community, by the community. That’s right, we will be firing up the pizza ovens and serve you all with the best pizzas Belgium has to offer.

The listed ticket price includes all-you-can-eat pizza (or until we run out… go ahead, we dare you), as well as a great selection of Belgian specialty beers and other beverages. We’ll make sure that vegetarians have plenty of options, but anyone intending to join us with special dietary requirements, please let us know ahead of time!
We’re looking forward to meeting you all again at FOSDEM 2015 and the Community Dinner. See you then!

Once again, we want to thank our generous sponsors, whose help makes this affordable at such a great price.
On that subject, we would like to point out that we will not be able to get an exact fix on the full cost until we have a full list of attendees, so with that in mind, the price we’ve set is based on the assumption of a certain amount of people attending. If the amount of people ends lower than our target, any remaining funds will be donated to the FOSDEM organization. FOSDEM, by the way, is a free, developer-oriented annual event attracting more than 5,000 geeks from around the world.

Wondering how to get there from FOSDEM?

The venue itself is located very close to the VUB. You can find the route to get there right here.

The total distance from the ULB campus is about 2.3km, so you could walk there, but it might be more comfortable to take the tram.

– Tram 25 departs from the “ULB” stop regularly, and will take you up to “Hansen-Soulie”, where you need to get out, and walk the remaining 200m. The tram ride takes about 11 minutes.

    Does low carb count as a dietary requirement? 😉
