Last Monday I finally arrived at A Coruña coming from the always great FOSDEM!

Those were 3 intense days where I had the chance to taste some of the finest beers in the world, attend great conferences and meet really nice people.

This year I had the chance to walk in the city and see and feel its magic. I also found the best restaurant I could eat atlast year, this time really in Brussels (last year we went to Gent), I am talking about Amadeus. You DO NOT want to miss this great place if you go to Brussels, Gent or Antwerp. The thing with this restaurant is: you eat a giant piece of ribs with a tasteful sauce that you like so much you feel it should be forbidden and… if your belly can afford to have it, ask for another round already included in the price. And the price, ridiculous, only about 15 €! I paid ~18 € if you with the drink.

This was also a good opportunity to meet Igalians I only knew from Igalia planet and talk more with those I knew before. I was great to share good times with you guys! Apart from my colleagues, I could also meet open source ninjas like Lucas Rocha from EOG.

Hope we can repeat the thrill next year folks!
