Plasma Meeting In Oporto


After the very successful first Tokamac in Millan, Italy we would like to repeat this at the second Plasma developer meeting in the beautiful city of Oporto, Portugal. The local ISEP institute, the Dep. de Engenharia Informática (DEI) kindly offered to host this meeting. DEI/ISEP is very interested in Open Source technologies especially exiting and promissing ones like KDE's Plasma. ISEP wants its students of computer science to experience Open Source Software creation and community.

Getting there

By Metro
metro map The Airport Station is located just in front of the arrivals zone of the International Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport, in parallel with the two existing road ways. Nevertheless, the person’s circulation between both the equipments is guaranteed by a proper underground passage. When arriving at the Airport Station, people only needs to go down a floor and, in little less than 50 meters walking, they are inside of the Airport. Equally, the access to the Station from the interior of the Airport is extremely simple and practical, being fully signalled.
You will need to buy a occasional "Andante" title required for travelling between the Airport Station and Oporto city centre is a Z4. In the Andante shop located in the arrivals zone of the Airport you can also buy the Andante Tour, an unlimited and intermodal title valid for 1 or 3 days. Go until the Trindade Station and leave the train, go to line D in the upper level, and take the direction "Hospital de São João", then leave in the IPO Station the hotel is right across the street.
