Get your GNU on at the GNU Hackers' Meeting in Hessen, Germany

by Georgia Young Contributions Published on Apr 24, 2017 11:45 AM
Do you hack on GNU packages—or are you just interested in GNU? Now is the time to register for the GNU Hackers' Meeting in Hessen, Germany, August 24-27, 2017.

You are invited to the 2017 GNU Hackers' Meeting, which will take place at Tagungshaus Mühlrain.

The GNU Hackers' Meeting is a friendly, semi-formal forum to discuss technical, social, and organizational issues concerning free software and GNU. This is a great opportunity to meet GNU maintainers and active contributors. This year, accommodation and all meals are included in the cost of registration.

The program is yet to be finalized, but attendees should anticipate organized events that last until late afternoon each day. (Here's last year's program, including recordings of sessions.) In the evening, there will be opportunities for impromptu talks, informal demonstrations, conversation, and walks in the forest. Many people will arrive on the evening before the first day of the meeting.

Contributors and attendees from all backgrounds and with all levels of technical expertise are welcome. Those from under-represented backgrounds are particularly encouraged to attend.

The call for participation is also open now. Presentations can cover a wide range of subjects, both technical and social, related to the GNU project or to the Free Software movement as a whole.

To register, follow these instructions.

You will find full details on the meeting, including a detailed schedule TBA, here.
