Subject Re: Draft Proposal for FOSDEM Devroom
Date Tue, 12 Sep 2017 12:30:20 GMT
Hi Kevin

All the rooms are free which is why there is such a high demand for 
them. The location is in a university so the rooms can vary a lot from 
lecture theatre size (which I think they keep for the main tracks) and 
to various smaller sized classrooms. I can ask the organisers the 
question about holding a beer/wine/cheese event to see if that OK just 
in case there are any restrictions.
