Anyone else arriving on the 6th at FRA?

Is there anyone else arriving the morning of the 6th at FRA?

My flight lands in the early morning and it would be just awesome if I could travel to the hostel with another
debianite :)

TecKids <at> DebConf

Dear all,

we are happy to announce that TecKids[1], a non-profit specialising in
working with kids, teaching them technonology, and fostering
self-sustaining communities amongst them, will be holding a workshop
from 15.08. to 18.08.

The focus is on kids aged 10-15 years old, but kids aged 8-16 years
old are welcome to attend if they can follow the course without
supervision of theirs parents.

You are more than welcome to share this email with non-Debian people
who have or know kids who may be interested. As our dear leader
Chairman Mau put it, this collaboration is a great opportunity for
outreach to people who may otherwise not interact with Debian.

Admission is free of charge, but registration through TecKids' web
form[2] is mandatory.

The rough schedule for now is:

* robotics
* game programming
* Arduino

You will be kept up to date on any changes to the schedule and other
details by the TecKids team after registration.

Richard

Help with scheduling train for DebConf 15

Dear people,

I will be travelling from Guarulhos, Brazil (GRU) to the Frankfurt airport
(FRA), but I am having some problems understanding the UI of the widget that
is right at <http://debconf15.debconf.org/information.xhtml#train>.

I would *highly* appreciate it if anybody could help me with some details.
In particular:

* There is more than one option named Frankfurt. Which one to choose?
* Should I choose departure or arrival? I thought that the "source"
  vs. "destination" (supposing that the top field is "source" and
  "destination") already indicated that, but I am now unsure.

When I click on search, a much bigger form is presented and I get slightly
more confused:

Even if I specify "Start" and "Destination" and select "Outward and return
journey", I am still asked in the "Date and Time" section, to select
"Departure" or "Arrival" for both legs of the trip.

Beyond that, I am not sure if I'm elligible for the savings fare or the
standard fare.

I think that, depending on the time of my plane (and delays, and grabbing my
baggage, and potentially more delays etc.), this uncertainty would rule out
the savings fare? Or wouldn't it? If, given these constrains, it is still
possible to have the discount price, do I have to acquire the BahnCard 25 to
take advantage of the lower price?

Froscon

Hi,

so DebConf15 is not only preceed by CCCamp, it's also directly and 
overlappingly followed by FrosCon.org and I'll be giving a talk at Froscon on 
Sunday afternoon. Thus I'm wondering if anybody would be interested in driving 
to Froscon with me?

Rough idea so far: leaving DebConf at 10-11 AM, arriving at Froscon 2.5h 
later...

cheers,
	Holger

real-time/VoIP communication topics at DebConf15


Hi all,

I'd like to understand if there are any specific interests that people
have in the domain of real-time communications (RTC) and ideas for what
we could do at DebConf15

I've given talks and demonstrations on this topic in the past and I've
offered to do that again but I'd also be happy to look at other possible
presentation styles.

Some ideas could include:

- a debate: for example, federated (SIP, XMPP) vs true peer-to-peer
(like Tox)

- workshop / implementation: go through the RTC Quick Start Guide[1]
step-by-step or duplicate rtc.debian.org to some other community

- question and answer session: people can ask about problems they have
had (maybe email in advance too) and some of the developers can present
short answers to them

Do people have any other ideas for this subject area?

Does anybody want to suggest any other communities or non-profits who
may be willing to deploy SIP or XMPP on a Debian server if they had a
little help getting it up and running during DebConf?

Regards,
(Continue reading)

summit / summittest / schedule?


When I originally went looking for schedule details, I somehow ended up
looking at

  https://summittest.debconf.org/debconf15/

but it turns out there is also

  https://summit.debconf.org/debconf15/

It looks like my talk proposals are in the latter but I'm not sure what
link I followed to end up looking at the schedule in the wrong site,
summittest.  It has been open in a tab in my browser for quite a few
weeks actually.  I only realized it was wrong when I went to copy the
iCal link and I found very few events in the ics file from summittest.

Anyhow, I notice the proper iCal link:

  https://summit.debconf.org/debconf15.ical

doesn't actually include many of the events listed on this page:

  https://summit.debconf.org/debconf15/all/

Is that just because they are not scheduled yet?  Or is there some
limitation on the iCal file?
