title: 'FOSDEM is near'
<!-- Yes, I almost went with "Teh FOSDEM nearth", but decided against it since 'nearth' is not a real word. Nevermind the 'Teh', mellenials love using 'teh'. Gentoo can be fun! =) -->
Excitement is building with FOSDEM 2018 only a few days away. There are now [14 current](https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/FOSDEM_2018#Developers) and [one former](https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/User:Dberkholz) developer in planned attendance, along with many from the Gentoo community.

Gentoo!](https://fosdem.org/2018/schedule/event/unix_windows_gentoo/)* will be given by [Michael Haubenwallner](https://fosdem.org/2018/schedule/speaker/michael_haubenwallner/) ([haubi <i class="fa fa-user" aria-hidden="true"></i>](https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/User:Haubi)) of the [Gentoo Prefix](https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:Prefix) project.
