Ths Osmocom Developer Conference 2016 ([wiki:OsmoDevCon2016]) is an event '''by project members for project members'''.
As such, the primary audience is people who have been contributing to the project.
It is '''not targetted at users'''.
Attendance requires registration (see below) and notification of acceptance. There number of participants
is limited to about 20.
'''April 21 through April 24, 2016''
Time: We will '''start at 10am''' in the morning, will take '''lunch break from 1pm to 3pm''' and have an open
end at night. We have a key to IN-Berlin to come and go as we please.
In the rooms of [http://www.in-berlin.de/ IN-Berlin e.V.], Lehrter Str. 53, 10557 Berlin, Germany, the Universe.
The meeting / seminar / conference room at IN-Berlin is located on ground floor and has windows facing east.
In front of those windows is a road + sidewalk which is directly in north-south direction,
i.e. it ''may'' be possible to set up some (GPS, Thuraya, etc.) antennas on the sidewalk, if required.
Some kind of pole+stand is required, though.
The format of this workshop is not primarily formal lectures/talks. It's more like "guided discussions", i.e. there are
topics and each topic will get an "owner" who should introduce the topic and lead the discussion related to it.
