FOSDEM in Brussels is one of our favorite conferences each year as it fully reflects our love for Free and Open Source software.

This is one of the reasons why we support Open Source software through development and sponsorship. For example, we are the second biggest supporter on Open Collective and we have a ton of our own Open Source projects too.

I look back and see a younger version of myself looking desperately for something different and, by just sheer luck, getting it.
Ten participants from nine countries, who have never met before, are assigned to teams to work on real-world projects. Can they be successful? We ran this experiment in September 2018 on the trivago Campus, and were blown away by the results.
