Debian Med Sprint 2024

An in-person meetup of volunteers to create and update packages of bioinformatics and other biomedical software in Debian as part of the DebianMed team.

If you would like to join our small meeting for bug squashing (may be Python 3.12 bug fixing etc.) you are perfectly welcome to add your name to the list of attendees as well!

Location, Date

Venue

We will have access to one large (~15 people) and one small (~ 5 people) meeting room, so working in separate groups from time to time is definitely possible. A comfortable open space with coffee machine for socialising and relaxing is available.

Network and Wifi

There will be only public WiFi provided by DCSO. Sorry, no wired ethernet will be available.

Getting there

Berlin can be easily reached from within Germany using the DB train system (Berlin Hbf or Berlin-Südkreuz) or Flixbus long-distance bus service (Berlin ZOB or Alexanderplatz). There is also a major international airport: Berlin Brandenburg (BER) with good public transport connections to the rest of the city for 3.80 € per trip: https://ber.berlin-airport.de/en/orientation/getting-here/public-transport.html

The venue is easily reachable by S-Bahn (S1, Ringbahn S41/S42/S46) via Schöneberg station. There are also a couple of buses running (M46, 248). See https://sbahn.berlin/liniennetz/station/235/ for more details. Südkreuz station would also be an alternative with a bit of walking.

Please avoid coming by car in favour of the environment and limited parking.

Accommodation

There are a variety of hotels and hostels just a couple of S-Bahn stations from the venue, e.g. near Potsdamer Platz or Anhalter Bahnhof: https://www.google.com/maps/search/hotels+near+euref-campus/@52.4884989,13.3415758,14z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!2m4!5m3!5m2!4m1!1i2

Food

The venue is located in the "Rote Insel" district of Berlin (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rote_Insel) with many suitable and affordable lunch spots, e.g. good Korean and Indian restaurants, a South German Wirtshaus within very short walking distance, and various fast food options (with vegetarian menu items). There is also a nice Vietnamese restaurant right next to the S station Schoneberg (Viet Kitchen, Dominicusstraße 54, 10827 Berlin) with many vegan options.
