  1. You should include the “Open Source Meets Business” event in January:

    http://www.heise.de/events/2008/open_source_meets_business/en/

    It is a high profile open source conference in Germany.

  2. Martin!
    Thanks! I included the event.

  3. Now if you could just make e3ither an RSS feed of this or a create a calender out of it so we can integrated it in our favourite calendring client.

    You probably should already Add Fosdem.org and Linuxtag.org
    as the dates for those conferences are already announced.

    Also keep an eye on Sven Guckes page he has some updates on events.

    and als on Martin Schulzes page http://www.infodrom.org/Linux/calendar.html

  4. Kris!
    Thanks for your comment! I will make a calender soon. Other suggestions are applied.

  5. Shouldn’t that be “MySQL Conference and Exposition”, not “Exhibition”? Or even just “MySQL Conference and Expo” as they call it.

  6. Martin!
    Thanks! you are right. I corrected that.

  7. There will be Asia Open Source Software Conference and Showcase 2007 in November at Thailand.
