KDE at the Qt Contributors Summit

The Qt Contributors Summit is happening in Berlin from 16-18 June.


Please add your name if you are attending QCS, indicating if you are also representing another organisation or company.

We are unable to provide t-shirts, please bring your own to raise the KDE profile. The blue "Part of the solution" t-shirts are recommended.

Please indicate if you could attend a KDE meet-up/dinner on the Wednesday evening to discuss plans. A booking will be made for all people signed up by Monday.

We understand that many KDE attendees will firstly be representing your employer, but will appreciate your contribution from a KDE perspective whenever possible.

Dinner on Wednesday 15th June

We have reserved a table for 15 people for 8 pm at Brauhaus Lemke, Hackescher Markt. It's a brewery that serves German food.

The address is: Dircksenstraße, Im S-Bahnbogen 143. It is in walking distance from Alexanderplatz and the Park Inn hotel. Also close by S-Bahn-stop Hackerscher Markt.

Table is booked under the name "KDE/Rauch"
