Hackfest: Saarbrücken, Germany


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 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.


The hackfest will take place at k8.design, a non-profit company owned by the Saarbrücken arts university. k8.design is located at Keplerstr. 3-5 in Saarbrücken.

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