Helma Meeting Spring 2008

The purpose of this page is to organize a real-world meeting of Helma developers. See Hannes' original Letter of Intent.


So after some people said they couldn't make it on May 7, the new and definite date is Tuesday, May 6 2008. We'll start at 10 am. The day will be organized in a barcamp/open space style. "No spectators, just participants".


As suggested by anton and others, the meeting will take place at werkzeugH in Vienna. Many thanks go to Manfred Wuits for hosting us! For those who don't know, this is a nice and bar-ish place, perfect to hang out, talk, and drink.

They currently open at 4pm, which means we could have the location for ourselves before 4pm _but_ either have to bring our own food + drinks or pay a waiter/waitress. After 4pm, there's going to be other people, so we'd have to remove our food/drinks but could still use the back part of the room (which can be separated from the rest, I think). // hns


should we have some kind of agenda or just a casual get-together? should it be like a stammtisch, a barcamp or a conference? -anton

There'll be a beamer, and there are coffee tables and sofas. The day will be organized like a barcamp, so participants are invited (if not expected :-) to hold a talk or presentation on a topic of their interest. Participants can announce their presentations in the list below. Final planning will take place in the first hours of the meeting.
