I just wanted to give you all a heads up that...

This is something the FOSDEM organizers are developing right now. So you have to be patient. When we have any more news we will post it here.

It is not useful to post that here. That is something the FOSDEM organizers have to fix. It has nothing to do with App Inventor.

We are still hard at work behind the screens to make FOSDEM a success. We will be having a number of live streams during the weekend and you will be able to chat with the App Inventor developers.

As soon as we can we will post a schedule.

Why don't you already join the chatroom at FOSDEM? It is really calm at the moment but we will be there during FOSDEM.
