Dear $ALL, As stated in the subject line, X2Go: The Gathering 2018 will take place at Stuttgart's hackerspace "shackspace", from Friday afternoon, 2018-11-09, to Sunday afternoon/evening, 2018-11-11.
So, only a little more than 4 weeks from now. X2Go: The Gathering is the annual event where users, admins, and developers of X2Go meet face to face, to discuss current X2Go-related issues, fix open bugs, and have a good time getting to know each other. As there is some overlap between X2Go, Arctica, and ORCA e.V., you can expect to see members of those groups as well. Food and beverages are available on-site at low cost. What will cost you money is if you need a place to sleep - we have a few hotels/hostels that we recommend; If you want to take part, and need a hostel/hotel room, please contact me at <x2go-m...@baur-itcs.de> ASAP, so we can find a hostel/hotel room for you. Prices currently range from about 31 EUR (cheapest single-bed hostel bedroom) to about 80 EUR (single-bed hotel room), but these may change (increase!) as we get closer to the event date, so please book early if you can! However, this year, attendance *at the actual event* is free for everyone, as the venue is not charging us for using their facilities. Please *do* shoot me a quick e-mail (you can reach me at <x2go-m...@baur-itcs.de>) if you intend to attend, so we have an approximate idea of how many people we need to expect, whether you need a place to stay or not, will be around for breakfast/lunch/dinner, etc. etc. Further information regarding the event, like suggestions on how to travel to shackspace, and where the nearest suitable hostels/hotels are located, can be found at <https://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/events:x2go-gathering-2018> - we will be updating this page whenever new information becomes available, so please monitor it closely if you plan to attend. We currently have one sponsor for the event - https://cfd.direct - that has pledged 500 EUR (plus VAT), like last year, and we appreciate it very much. Sadly, they are so far our only sponsor this year, so if you know someone willing and able to co-sponsor the event, please let me know at <x2go-m...@baur-itcs.de>. Whether they wish to send us some "swag" with their company branding, or pledge money that we can use to lower dining and lodging costs for our participants, their sponsorship is greatly appreciated.
