European GNUstep Developer's Meeting
1st. GS EDM: What it is about
During FOSDEM 2007 it was felt that we need a separate GNUstep developer's meeting so that we all have the time to go through ideas, discuss, present, decide, plan future aspects without being in three places at the same time.
A thread started on the discussion list http://groups.google.de/group/gnu.gnustep.discuss/browse_frm/thread/852d2f0686d1e64e/cf6d877685630896?lnk=st&q=%22hns%40computer.org%22+OR+%22hns%40dsitri.de%22&rnum=1&hl=de#cf6d877685630896 shows a lot of interest in such a meeting.
So, let's make nails with heads and have GSFun, GSHack and maybe GSHike!
to be defined
- St-Gervais les Bains (Bettex) - chalet up to 12 persons
- near Bergamo - location to be defined by requirements
- Sarentino - to be verified
- Freiburg area
- Switzerland (Emmental?)
We hope that we can keep accomodation cost low.
To reduce travel cost, we can try to do car sharing.
Some sponsorship for accommodation support for students and other participants who demand that would be welcome!
Weekend in September
something like Sat 15:00 - Sun 15:00
Everybody who thinks he/she can contribute to the development of GNUstep is welcome!
