It went a little something like this.
I wrote a mail to our internal mailing list saying ‘if anyone’s coming to FOSDEM, I invite you to my place and I’ll make moules frites for you.’
I was expecting, oh, I don’t know, maybe four or five people.
After that, Pierre, our development manager started negotiating with our CEO to invite all the developers to FOSDEM. And he succeeded. And then the support team wanted to come too.
The result is now there are 14 people coming over for mussels and fries tonight.
This is what 14 kilos of mussels and 7.5 kilos of potatoes look like before preparing.
By the way, if you like mussels, you like programming (especially Python), and you like Barcelona, we are hiring again. (Actually, we also hire people that don’t like mussels). You can also come talk to anyone on our team if you happen to be at FOSDEM so you don’t have to take my word for how awesome working at Flumotion is. You should be able to recognize them by their shirts.
