Seventh Free Software Developer Conference
For 6 years, this traditional event has been loved by many. The backbone of annually coming listeners and speakers has formed, and new participants are pleasantly surprised at the dissimilarity of the event to other similar ones. The format of the conference does not imply mass participation, partly because of its specificity, usually the number of participants does not exceed 100 people. Such chamberness favors the creation of a democratic atmosphere, participants can talk to speakers without fuss, find like-minded people, and take part in general discussions.
