Dinner

Lightning Talks and Live Demos

We will have 5-minute lightning talks and 10-minute live demos on Sunday after lunch from 3PM. Everybody is invited to give a lightning talk or live demo, e.g. on the work you've achieved during ?MiniDebCamp!

Signup for them will be on a flip chart in the main Hacklab after the opening ceremony, please note down your name, the title of your talk and whether it is a lightning talk or a live demo.

If possible, please provide us with (PDF) slides or an (HTML) URL in advance at cfp@minidebconfhamburg.debian.net as we want to minimize downtime due to projector issues. If you want or have to (probably in case of live demos) use your own notebook, please try to check in advance during a break whether it works. HDMI and other digital inputs should be fine, but VGA is usually very tricky. If you absolutely insist on using VGA, it will be your responsibility to make it work and fiddling with xrandr will count towards your time!

Location

Fux eG

While the old entrance at Bodenstedtstr. 16 (Hinterhof Eingang West), 22765 Hamburg (OpenStreetmap waypoint), still works, it's much better to use the new entrance on the corner of Bodenstedtstraße and Zeiseweg, AKA the new main front entrance to Fox. The Cantina, where we'll have lunch and dinner is located just on the left after you entered the building through that main entrance, and the Dock Europe seminar rooms are located in the 2nd floor on the left (west) side of the building.

The event will be hosted in the former Victoria Kaserne, now called Fux (or Frappant), which is a collective art space located in a historical monument. It is located between S-Altona and S-Holstenstraße, so there is a direct subway connection to/from the Hamburg Airport (HAM) and Altona is also a long distance train station.

There's a Gigabit-Fiber uplink connection and wireless coverage (almost) everywhere in the venue and in the outside areas. (And then, we can also fix locations without wireless coverage.)

Within the venue, there are three main areas we will use, plus the garden and corridors:

dock europe

map entrance to Fux

dock europe is a meeting space within the venue which offers three rooms which can be combined into one big one. During the Mini-DebCamp from Wednesday to Friday we will probably use the rooms in the split configuration, while on Saturday and Sunday it will be one big room hosting presentations and such stuff. There are also two small rooms we can use as small hacklabs for 4-6 people.

dock europe also provides accomodation for some us, see further below.

CCCHH hackspace

/!\ The CCCHH hackspace is being renovated atm and will most likely not be usable during the Mini-DebConf. You might be able to help renovating though ;)

Just down two corridors in the same floor and building as dock europe there is the CCC Hamburg Hackspace which will be open for us on all five days and which can be used for "regular Debian hacking" or, if you find some nice CCCHH members to help you, you might also be able to use the lasercutter, 3d printer, regular printer and many other tools and devices. It's definitly also suitable for smaller ad-hoc workshops but beware, it will also somewhat be the noisy hacklab, as it will also be open to regular CCC folks when we are there.

fux und ganz

The Fux also has a cantina called "fux und ganz" which will serve us (and other visitors of the venue) with lunch and dinner. Please register to ease their planning as well!

Cantina will serve us food at these times:

Available rooms summary

Available beds on site

There is also limited on-site accomodation available, dock europe provides 34 beds in 10 double-rooms, 2 triple-rooms and 2 quad-rooms in the venue. The rooms are nice, small, clean, have a locker, wireless and are just one floor away from our main spaces. There's also a sufficient amount of showers and toilets and breakfast (for 5e per day) is available (for those 34 people) as well. The beds will be distributed from two buckets on a first come, first serve base:

Please note that there is an additional one-time fee of 6e for linen and towels.

Please send mail to holger@d.o if you are interested in this offer.

MiniDebCamp

Debian Sprints

The MiniDebcamp from Wednesday to Friday is a perfect opportunity to host Debian sprints. We would welcome if teams assemble and work together on their projects. The following sprints will happen:

Standup meetings

During MiniDebCamp, on Wed/Thu/Fri, there will be a standup meeting ("MiniDebCamp MiniPlenary") at 15:00, lasting max. 30 minutes, in the Hacklab. Its purpose is to make short announcements of the day but mostly to tell the other participants what people are working on individually or as a team / in a sprint. This make it possible to join others, find helpers, and in general get to know what's going on.

Visa

For those in need of a visa invitation letter to get a visa, send a request to visa@minidebconfhamburg.debian.net. An invitation letter does not include travel cost reimbursement. If you can not cover the travel costs yourself, mail at the above mail address and we'll try our best to get it covered somehow.

Sponsors wanted

Making a Mini DebConf happen costs money, we need to rent the venue, video gear, hopefully can pay hard working volunteers lunch and dinner and maybe also sponsor some travel. So we really appreciate companies willing to support this meeting!

We have three sponsor categories:

Plus, there's corporate registration as an option too, where we will charge you 250€ for the registration. Please contact us if you are interested in that!

Organisation

If you plan to attend the event you are welcome to help, just add a comment to yourself at Registration and probably best to join #debconf-hamburg on OFTC and say so there.

IRC meetings for planning

To plan the Mini-DebConf we have regular meetings on on IRC on irc.oftc.net in the channel

Open tasks

To be improved

Be respectful

Debian event organisers are committed to providing an event where all participants feel safe. All attendees are expected to treat all people and facilities with respect and help create a welcoming environment. If you notice behaviour that fails to meet this standard, please speak up and help to keep this event as respectful as we expect it to be.

If you are harassed and requests to stop are not successful, or notice a disrespectful environment, the organisers want to help. Please contact us at antiharassment@debian.org. We will treat your request with dignity and confidentiality, investigate, and take whatever actions appropriate. We can provide information on security, emergency services, transportation, alternative accommodations, or whatever else may be necessary. If mediation is not successful, organisers reserve the right to to take action against those who do not cease unacceptable behaviour.

See the DebConf Code of Conduct and the Debian Code of Conduct.
