T-DOSE is a free and yearly event held in The Netherlands to promote use and development of Open Source Software. During this event Open Source projects, developers and visitors can exchange ideas and knowledge. This years event will be held on 26 and 27 October 2013 at the Fontys University of Applied Science in Eindhoven.
Alternative Activities in Eindhoven
Like last year, we have composed a list of other interesting things to do in Eindhoven during the weekend of T-DOSE, since they would like to bring a partner who is not as interested in Open Source as they are.
We've composed a short (and by no means exhaustive) list of suggestions:
In the Beursgebouw, very near to the T-DOSE site, is the 'Boekenfestijn', a four day long sale of books of every kind at greatly reduced prices. Entrance is free. See also http://www.boekenfestijn.com
The T-DOSE weekend is also the first weekend of GLOW, an event where light based performances are held and light based works of art are displayed in the center of Eindhoven every evening. See also http://www.gloweindhoven.nl/.
For those interested in art, the Van Abbe museum (contemporary art, http://www.vanabbemuseum.nl/ ) may be worth visiting.
If history is more your thing, then the Kempenland Museum (heritage of Brabant, http://www.museumkempenland.nl/ ) or the DAF Museum (car and truck-manufacturer, http://www.dafmuseum.nl/EN) may be worth visiting.
The 'Koren-festival' (choir-festival) is held at the same time as T-Dose. The festival is at different locations through Eindhoven. Look at http://www.korenfestivaleindhoven.nl/ for more information.
And finally, if you prefer to just go shopping, most shops in the city centre of Eindhoven are open on both Saturday and Sunday.
