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).

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 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.

From Code to Community

This short, 6 hour open source event will take place in the Pingusson building, Hohenzollernstraße 60, 66117 Saarbrücken.

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.

Catering
