Disclaimer: This was meant to be annotated (why I wanted to watch which talk), but after I suffered from some data loss, I just want to have it out of the door now.

Prequel

I always fell short on this. The second day is starting earlier than the first one. That means, I had to hurry up with the larger plate I filled for breakfast.

But this time, I did not get lost in Brussels, but took public transport to ULB. Researching with Transportr showed me, that the shortest way would be by taking a bus.

But it rained again. Because I was in a hurry, I forgot my umbrella I bought yesterday. Moreover, I also let the thermo mug with black tea in my room :-(

Looking closely at the map, I could see, that by walking five minutes, I could save some time by not jumping from one bus to the other. Waiting for the bus, some other hackers joined me on waiting for the bus, so we took the bus together. They also knew which direction to take after dropping out.

For some reason, I started with another talk than originally planned. But I made sure to attend the talks of friends (except Daniele's - sorry!) and the ones which were important to me: git-issue and FOSSH - 2000 to 2020 and beyond!. I mean, how often do you get the chance to meet a legend like maddog?!

The most inspiring talk to me was about Loanwords, Agriculture & WebAssembly because I learned about a possibility to create an own programming language. (Even if not performant). Endless opportunities flooded my mind in the afternoon! Thanks Andre!

I learned more about the history of FOSDEM and could pick up my laptop afterwards. Sadly, the Mozilla crew already left before I could get back there.

So I went back to my hostel by walking the about 80 minutes. Something I learned could help in the [burnout][Recognising Burnout] talk.

All in all, it was a mixed FOSDEM to me this year. But see for yourself:
