Agenda

I have been thinking some issues that would be helpful to tackle, please feel free to edit (or append to) this information:

Announcements

Attendees

Please add you own name, e-mail address, country ([http://www.iso.org/iso/en/prods-services/iso3166ma/02iso-3166-code-lists/list-en1.html 2-letter code]) and airport of origin ([http://www.photius.com/wfb2001/airport_codes_alpha.html 3 letter code])

The number of attending people is strictly limited to 20, for lodging reasons. In case the final count exceeds that number, choices will have to be made, sorry for this.

Flight tickets status

Madrid Airport warning

All flights are going to Madrid, they have a new Terminal 4, a.k.a Terminator 4. Be aware, that people lose baggage and flights because flying gates are 20-25 minutes away from security point, and a long way from checking point. Take this as a *WARNING* and please take care with your baggage. Also baggage handling is automatic and i think they really need some emdebian geeks to stay over there for a couple months fixing their stuff. Please *DO NOT LOSE YOUR GADGETS*.

Ie, try survive with just hand luggage!

Sure

Hardware and interests

Since we are embedded, instead of say, s390, getting target hardware transported is easy. One of the advantages of meeting physically we exploit is meeting with systems you don't deal with usually. putting them in handluggage is good idea :)
