OsmoDevCon2024

This page is used to plan and coordinate regarding the Osmocom Developer Conference 2024

Osmocom Developer Conference 2024

Contrary to OsmoCon, the Osmocom Developer Conference 2024 (OsmoDevCon2024) is an event by contributors for contributors.
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. The number of participants is limited to about 25.

When

May 3rd-6th, 2024

Time: We will start at 10am in the morning, will take lunch break around 1pm, a dinner break around 8pm and have an open end at night.

Where

Contrary to our past OsmoDevCons (which have all been rather low budget, grass roots events), laforge felt that particularly after the long COVID-related break, it would be nice to do something slightly more fancy: Stay together with the entire group for four days, in a conference hotel.

The selected venue is Van der Valk Hotel Berlin Brandenburg which is actually not in Berlin, but slightly south of Berlin, very near the BER airport. The street address is Eschenweg 18, 15827 Blankenfelde, GERMANY

We will have a 120 square metre meeting room for our meetings. The conference/event hotel has many amenities including a garden as well as spa/sauna, indoor swimming pool, bar, etc.

Format

Not every event at OsmoDevCon must be a formal lecture/talks. Individual events can also be more like workshops or "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.

Sponsors

We'd like to thank our confirmed sponsors:

Coffee, Tee and soft drinks, juice and mineral water are included in the conference package. Alcoholic beverages must be paid individually.

Lunch

Included in the conference package each day, see above

Dinner

Travel

If you have difficulties covering your travel costs to OsmoDevCon, please contact to determine if sysmocom or a third party can help you with covering that.

Airports

Berlin only has one active airport during OsmoDevCon2024: Berlin Brandenburg International (BER). It is best to take a cab for the ride to the hotel, as public transport doesn't have a decent connection without changing multiple times.

Train / Public Transport

The closest train station is Blankenfelde, served by S2 trains connecting from Berlin main station and Berlin Südkreuz.

From Blankenfelde train station it is a 12min bus ride to the hotel (Bus 792 to Dahlewitz, Eschenweg Hotel)

Car

The hotel offers complimentary parking for all hotel guests. The hotel is easily accessible from Autobahn A10 suedlicher Berliner Ring
