Hackfest: Paris, June 27th — July 1st


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.


Paris is well connected with three international airports (including the second busiest in Europe) as well as being the center of the TGV high speed train network. It is centrally located in Europe and is an easy trip for many Inkscape hackers. There are direct flights to/from most major US cities.


The hackfest will take place at Carrefour Numérique². This is a Fablab/hackerspace located inside Paris's excellent modern science museum. They use Inkscape all the time (and they love it!).

Location on Google Maps, Open Street Map. Carrefour Numérique² is located on level -1.

Take Metro line 7 to Porte de la Villette.


We'll have use of the "Salle class numérique" three days and "Le studio" one day. The "Salle" is equipped with five tables, each with power and wired Internet connection (TBD check on wireless connections). Remember to bring an EU type plug adapter.


Tuesday-Friday from Noon - 6:30 PM. We'll meet informally in the morning.
