You can add yourself to the list of interested participants below. Please, also send a mail to Thomas.

Date and Location

July 2.-4. 2010 at the Linuxhotel in Essen, Germany. Linuxhotel in Essen: (Travel info, Anreise)

See for generic information on community events at this location (only in German language)

Sleeping, Eating, Drinking

Sleeping in the hotel, breakfast, coffee flatrate and drinks are included in the low fee we have to pay. We have to organize lunch and dinner on our own. Normally we manage to pay everything with the money from our sponsors, so you do not have to pay anything. WE DO NOT HAVE ANY SPONSORS YET!


We have pay some costs for every person:

  • If n=number of persons, overall amount of money needed: n * 60

Additional money is needed for food and maybe travel sponsorship

We're looking for sponsors from now on, so far we have an agreement with these companies:

Many thanks to the sponsors!
