OsmoDevCon2017

This page is used to plan and coordinate regarding the Osmocom Developer Conference 2017

Osmocom Developer Conference 2017

Contrary to OsmoCon2017, the Osmocom Developer Conference 2017 (OsmoDevCon2017) is an event by project members for project members.
As such, the primary audience is people who have been contributing to at least one of the Osmocom projects.

It is not targeted at users.

Attendance requires registration (see below) and notification of acceptance. There number of participants
is limited to about 20.

When

April 22 through April 24, 2017

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.

Where

In the rooms of 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.

Format

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.

There is some public parking in Lehrter Str., where IN-Berlin is located, but it is quite crowded. Parking your car might
