Workshops at Locations



  • @twinkybot said in Workshops at Locations:

    @guru yes we have two "big" meeting rooms with big TVs. One bigger room with a projector. An open area with an projector.
    And plenty normal monitors if we put them back 🙂
    Another projector in a cabinet.

    I was asking more for the interface HMDI because my Acer C720 netbook has only HMDI. And for some projector to capture the device BQ (...) with some kind of cam located on top over the BQ and beam it to the wall while one is manipulating some app to show some nice feature/stuff. Does your office has such stuff?



  • @guru We have HDMI.
    But not the cam stuff though. But I am sure we can improvise



  • Hi all,

    I'm also interested in meeting, no matter what the subject. I'm very frequently in Brussels, and Lisbon, so any place that is near, or has good direct transportation is fine for me.

    I want to leave the suggestion of instead of using GetTogether instead of the Meetup.
    GetTogether is Free Software, made by Michael Hall (former Canonical employee, former Ubuntu Community Manager, current Community Manager at Endless, and all around nice guy). Besides being Free Software that we can run by ourselves, we can federate it, or just use GetTogether.community service.

    I believe GetTogether is more aligned with this community goals, and we can benefit both projects.



  • @diogo could you post the url of this get together. It seems I am not able to find it. Thabks.



  • @twinkybot

    https://gettogether.community/

    A search with Michael Hall canonical allow to find his G+ account and then...





  • Well the software is still a bit buggy it seems 🙂
    But yeah. It is out.



  • Is there also another alternative for these kind of events?
    I noticed you have to pay a recurring fee for meetup 😮



  • @flohack said in Workshops at Locations:

    Spain

    Where are you going to be in Spain? This could be a good opportunity to meet with spanish ubports members.



  • So now two points. I heard you @Flohack 🙂
    But still let's have at least some topics people can look forward to 😉

    The other part is where can we announce this also to involve more interested people?

    And I am looking forward to it!



  • @twinkybot I found an easy way to bring the BQ to the UNIX laptop screen to show something live; see the fotos. A small VGA cam is "mounted" into a lamp over the BQ.

  • @twinkybot Yes it's. The project is very young. And it doesn't have anyone expert on front-end working on it. All contributions on that area are welcome.

    Michael Hall (project developer), is saying that he will prioritize our requirements if we wish.



  • I'm really considering going to the Munich event. I'm not to far (currently in Brussels). However I don't speak German, I think I could only understand you guys in English, will this be ok with you?

    Also

    • I would like recommendations for an hotel.
    • besides being interested in learning more about development of and for Ubuntu touch, I'm a podcaster and I would love this opportunity to do some inside coverage of the event. Will you guys be also ok with this?


  • I would appreciate the opportunity to practice my English. It would be surprising for me, if someone here disagreed with doing it in English...(?)
    What does the last point mean exactly?



  • @hummlbach Possibly I would do some recording of us working, ideally some interviews or chats within the group.

    Off-course nothing private and or personal would ever be published. And nothing would ever be recorded on any instance without all attendees be informed and authorize.

    The idea is to create content that shows we're at work, people specifically developers are interested on it and others that are undecided could know that we as a community will be there for them, and also that Ubuntu Touch is not dead (some people still think it's).



  • @diogo I do not mind speaking english 🙂
    As for Hotels there is a huge variety. If you want something cheap then I'd suggest the Euro Youth Hostel which is really nice. At least the bar 🙂 ant located at the city center.
    Next to my office there is an hote which is a standard one. But I forgot the name. Sorry this is my extend of knowledge.

    For recording I have nothing against.



  • @twinkybot I'm not interested on a very cheap Hotel, I prefer a mix of comfort, clean, and being near the places I need to be. The price should not be to high but I'm not looking for the cheapest...



  • I've seen there is a holiday inn express not far away. Perhaps that is what you referring to twinkybot? What about checking all in to the same hotel and having breakfast together? 🙂



  • @hummlbach @Diogo Yes the Holiday Inn Express it is.
    Friedenheimer Brücke 15.
    It is 2 mins from my office 🙂 and nice. Our employees who come to visit are mostly staying there. Didn't hear of no complaints.



  • All in all our office is with the metro 3 stations from the main station. So very close to the city center if you want to do some sight seeing.
