h1. OsmoDevCon2017


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

h1. 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.

h2. 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.

h2. 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.

h2. 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.
