    The LibreOffice Hackfest will take place in the City of Brussels in BelgiumWikipedia logo v3.svg on February 6th and 7th, just after FOSDEM, and is hosted at Betacowork Coworking Brussels.



    The venue is at Betacowork Coworking Brussels, 4 rue des Pères Blancs, 1040 Etterbeek.

    Mind: we are guest in a room where regular members of the cowork-space are for their work too. So please be quiet and try to whisper when talking.
    There is a large area near the kitchen where (louder) discussion is no problem at all.
