"The entire symposium was intellectually stimulating, highlighting trends in open source and how to do what we do better." (Crystle Numan, Newsforge)

"If you are in Northern America and have wanted to go to a conference but the big conferences were either too expensive (OSCON) or far away (FOSDEM), I heartily recommend this one." (Benjamin Smedberg, Mozilla Corporation)
