Hackfest: Saarbrücken, Germany

Description

A hackfest! We will work on Inkscape bugs, new features, and packaging as well as website issues; in fact anything that can benefit from developers and users being physically in the same space.

The hackfest will take place before (and continue informally through) the 2019 LGM conference (info about this year's organizers).

For the regional open source event 'From Code to Community' on May 29th [link to schedule], we plan to have a group of Inkscapers presenting Inkscape to the visitors.

We plan for announcing the 1.0 release some time at LGM (no guarantees!).

Saarbrücken

Saarbrücken is a city in the west of Germany, next to the border with France. It is about 2 hours from Paris and 3 hours from Frankfurt by train. There is a local airport (SCN) with some international flights.

The LGM website has more comprehensive info on traveling to Saarbrücken.

Venue

Hackfest

The hackfest will take place in an open-plan office at k8.design, a non-profit company owned by the Saarbrücken arts university. k8.design is located at Keplerstr. 3-5 Ufergasse 2 in Saarbrücken . k8 staff will be working alongside us in the same office.

A neighboring, smaller office (10 persons max) will probably be available for us to use, too, e.g. for discussions that would otherwise be too loud.

The upper limit is 20 persons.

Their offices are open from ~9:00 in the morning. It's possible that we get a key, so we can stay as long as we need to in the evenings. Thomas has volunteered to be the key's keeper.

Finding the office

From Code to Community

This short, 6 hour open source event with a small exhibition, talks and workshops (mostly in German) will take place on May 29th in the Pingusson building, Hohenzollernstraße 60, 66117 Saarbrücken.

The Inkscape project will have a table with electricity and internet access. Other FLOSS communities, like the FSFE and Open Street Map will be present, too.

LGM

The opening on May 29th will follow directly on the 'From Code to Community' event, at Hohenzollernstraße 60, 66117 Saarbrücken.

On the following days, LGM will take place at the Hochschule der Bildenden Künste Saar (hbk Saar - Website, OpenStreetMap), the Saarland’s university of art and design.

During LGM, they seem to have more rooms available than there will be conference tracks, so it should be possible to have a collaboration space for Inkscape. However, we probably won't be able to have the same place continuously, and we would have to ask when we need it. There is also plenty of sitting space available on the venue.

Catering

No catering. Tobias Ellinghaus might be able to help us arrange for some snacks and beverages.

Facilities

  • Wireless networking (fast broadband).
  • Europlug type C and F.
  • LCD projector (HDMI)
  • flip chart
  • wired networking available, network switch needs to be brought by Inkscapers
    • RdH will bring an 8 port switch (5 ports free for other Inkscapers)

Nearby amenities

Located in a pedestrian zone with multiple places to buy food.

Hotels

Hackfest Dinner

An informal dinner will be held on Tuesday, May 28th. A table is booked at Stiefelbräu for 8 pm.

Attendance

Anybody interested in Inkscape is welcome to attend. Funding support for travel expenses is based on past contributions to Inkscape. See the Hackfest2019 Saarbrücken Attendees page for more details.
