2nd Marble Developer Weekend Sprint, October 19-21 2012
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.
The Marble Developer Weekend Sprint will be held at the OpenSUSE Conference 2012 in Prague.
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!
The Marble Weekend Sprint is sponsored by the KDE e.V.. Thanks a lot for supporting Marble!
The Marble Sprint will be held from October 19-21, with the following basic schedule:
- 19.10. arrival, starting from 16:00 local time (Friday). We will probably do some quick sight seeing tour in the evening and have dinner together.
- 20.10. sprint (Saturday), Lightning talks after noon.
- 21.10. sprint (Sunday) and departure starting from 18:00 local time.
- 22.10.-23.10. Marble Hacking Marathon
