Free Java Meeting

Let's meet in Brussels

The next meeting of the Free/Libre Open Source Software Java developers will take place in Brussels during [ FOSDEM], February 7th and 8th in Brussels, Belgium.

In the past several years there were two main events around libre java for the GNU/Linux platform. The Fosdem "Escape the Java Trap" event organized by the GNU Classpath community, coordinating technical issues around implementing core libraries, compilers, tools and free runtimes. And "DevJam", a GNU/Linux distro packaging conference organized by Debian, but meant as a cross-distribution coordination meeting to set common guidelines for packaging java programs and libraries.

The goals of the Free Java Meeting will be:
