Some updates from our latest newsletter...
Only 3 days left until RailsCamp Germany 2 in Münster, and that means it's time for some last updates:
1. Open Seats
There are some seats left. If you plan to attend, but haven't registered for the events yet, please do it now. It's not enough to be a member of the RailsCamp network, you have to check off "I'm attending" on the event pages! Find them here: http://bit.ly/zPOdr
As this is a so called unconference, which means an event organized solely by its participants, it would be most appreciated if you help us (i.e. yourselves) fill the last spots by getting the message out there via your Twitter, blogs, etc. – thanks a lot!
Btw, someone asked if there's a fee, and the answer is no. Thanks to our awesome sponsors RailsCamp won't cost you a cent. Except for travelling to Münster, of course.
2. Warmup Party
We arranged some tables at the FYAL for the warmup party on Friday. We'll start around 7 pm and you will find us in the basement. Info, photos & map (on Qype): http://bit.ly/RpYU2
Almost all planning regarding timetables, sessions, small breaks, etc. will be spontaneous, and we're open to your ideas and proposals. In fact, we're only offering you the framework for a great unconference (i.e. location, equipment, catering, raw schedule, and fellow RailsCampers) and you're in charge of what happens. You can plan any session you like, be it a talk, a discussion, group refactoring, a small hackathon, or whatever else you want (and that others like, too).
We'll start the session planning on Saturday at 10 am. The doors will open around 9 am.
There will be an official party on Saturday night (starting at the RailsCamp venue with some beers), and the location will be announced on Friday. As we all like long nights, we'd like to have a realistic start time on Sunday. You will be able to vote on that, so that the majority is fine with the decision.
Unlike last time (and unlike the original Railscamps) we will have a stable Internet connection for everyone at the venue. We also have enough power sockets and plenty of room (and especially tables) for your laptops. If you want to use a beamer, please don't forget your video adapter (VGA or DVI).
The Zweitag offices are located on the 2. floor. Just follow the RailsCamp and/or Zweitag signs. For more info, visit the according wiki page: http://bit.ly/hUdP
Last but not least we want to thank the great people who are making this RailsCamp possible! For the most part that's XING, who are well known for supporting the Ruby/Rails community on many occasions. Others include Wunderloop, Sonntagmorgen, Fairix, and t3n, as well as our location sponsor Zweitag, of course.
