I think, like last year, there will be a devroom, which will be
populated by some devs hacking on archlinux during the conference.

This will be announced shortly I think.

I think the amount of english/german talks is 50/50. I don't speak
german, though I understand 80% of it because I'm dutch.

Entrance fee for people not belonging to booths or devrooms pay 5 euros
for both days. This is cheap.

Froscon comes with a social event taking place on the night. Even the
social event on its own is interesting enough to justify a visit to
froscon. Froscon isn't froscon if it wouldn't be two days.
