1st Marble Developer Weekend Sprint, Nov. 5-7 2010

We'd like to invite all people who are interested in Marble Development: may it be through coding, graphics design, promotion, packaging, documentation, website or other areas. You have an interesting story to tell about Marble? You'd like to make Marble a great educational tool? You've built some software based on Marble? You're a Marble newbie and you'd like to get involved with KDE-EDU or Marble development? You dream of Navigation and Routing with Marble? -- We'd like to see you at the sprint!

Dates

The Marble Sprint will be held from November 5h to November 7th, with the following basic schedule:

  • 5.11. arrival, starting from 16:00 local time (Friday). We will probably do some quick sight seeing tour in the evening and have dinner together.
  • 6.11. sprint (Saturday), Lightning talks after noon.
  • 7.11. sprint (Sunday) and departure starting from 18:00 local time.

How to get there

Nurember is a city in the German state of Bavaria. There are several ways to reach the sprint location by train or by flight.

  • via the Nuremberg Airport: Take the subway U2 (direction "Röthenbach") from the airport to the central railway station (Hauptbahnhof). At the central railway station change into the subway U3 (same platform, direction Gustav-Adolf-Platz). At Gustav-Adolf-Platz change into the Bus line 69 and leave the bus at the station Südwestpark. If you continue to go straight in the same direction that the bus had when he arrived at the "Südwestpark" then you reach the office within 2 mins of walking.

In the city center of Nuremberg there are loads of hotels you can choose from. One of the more affordable ones is probably the Motel One which is located very close to the central railway station:
