Debian Cloud Sprint 2017

Location, Date

700 Bellevue Way NE
Bellevue, WA 98004

We have reserved meeting space located on the 15th floor of the "Lincoln Square" building in Bellevue, Washington. The Microsoft receptionist is also on the 15th floor. The room ID/number is "LS/15100-Meydenbauer".

Use one of the elevators under the big "Microsoft" sign accessible from either the 1st or 2nd floor of Lincoln Square (image). Then proceed to the 15th floor, and there will be signs for room 15100 aka "Meydenbauer" (image). You do not need to check in at the receptionist except to validate your parking.

There is underground parking available below the Lincoln Square building. Speak with the receptionist to validate your parking ticket. Validations are good for 24-hours.

We will have coffee/tea/water, breakfast and lunch will be on site provided by Microsoft. Please email for any dietary requirements.

LucaFilipozzi indicates that AirBnB is not particularly cheaper, on a per-person basis assuming doubling up at a hotel, than the least expensive hotels such as La Residence Suite Hotel.

Full agenda TBD.

The goal of this event will be to resolve some of the open issues that were discussed at our cloud sprint last year and the Cloud BoF at Debconf17 ( Video, Summary)).

We also want to get more work done on the plans we agreed last year - there's still a lot of ideas waiting to be implemented.

For reference, please take a look at SteveMcIntyre's excellent sprint report from last year: and the summary of the Cloud Team BoF at DC17
