> Daniel organised a“Save the Date” sign with details of ApacheCon NA and

> We also had a few project demos running via a monitor at the booth.

> FOSDEM is quite an intense conference because it runs over a couple of

> I'd really like to thank all the booth volunteers (Daan, Rohit, Trevor,

> It was also good to meet a few people from the earlier Apache days (so
> thanks to Xander and Torsten too!).
> It was an amazing fun event and I had a really great time. I hope that we
