This is the planning page for the upcoming Tokamak 5 developer sprint.
Dates and location
Date: 25th April - 30th Location: Nijmegen, Netherlands, at sebas' Address: Sebastian Kügler Meloenstraat 19 6543ZE Nijmegen The Netherlands Phone: +31 6 48370928
I've created a Google Map with some points of interest for the meeting:
Train Station: Nijmegen Centraal Closest Airports:
- Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS), 1.5 hours, direct train
- Eindhoven (EIN), <1.5 hrs by bus, train
- Weeze / Niederrhein (NRN), shuttle to Nijmegen
Train schedules: www.ns.nl (target station Nijmegen Centraal)
Flying in via Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (AMS)
Fares from AMS to Nijmegen Central Station are 17.50€. In the luggage hall in AMS, you'll find yellow blue ticket vending machines that (sometimes) work with most credit cards, so you can buy your train ticket while waiting for your luggage. Direct Trains go every 30 minutes (at .29 and .59), trains with one change in between, at .14 and .44). Indirect train means changing in Utrecht, and the journey taking ~10 minutes longer. End station in both cases is "Nijmegen Centraal" (main station), the trip from Schiphol to Nijmegen takes 1 hour 30 minutes.
If you're travelling via NRN or EIN, let sebas know and he'll have a look at last-mile transport for you.
Train to Nijmegen and Getting to sebas
You arrive at Nijmegen Central Station. Please add your arrival time to the this page. On arrival, you can take a taxi to sebas' house, at "Meloenstraat 17", the driver should know that. Fare is around 10€s, takes about 10 minutes.
Some people can sleep at my house, for others, we rent a bunch of rooms in a nearby bed and breakfast.
Meeting location is sebas' living room, if the weather is good enough, there's a small garden.
On Saturday, it's Queen's day in the Netherlands, and the night before Queen's night, plenty of opportunity to celebrate.
... is essential, and at Tokamak a social happening. It's important that everybody brings a nice recipe and takes their turn to cook for the fellow hackers. There's a supermarket at 3 minutes by bike. Sebas takes care of chocolate supplies. There's also plenty of options to order in food, good vegetarian food is available everywhere.
The Netherlands is not a cheap country, for a drink in a bar, count 2.50€, an order in pizza costs 6€-8€, a meal in a restaurant 20€. We'll be able to keep costs manageable by cooking ourselves.
It's the Netherlands, that means you'll need a bike to get around, between downtown / bed and breakfast and meeting location, and generally to keep fit and oxygenized. Good bikes can be rented at Nijmegen's train station from early until late. Downtown - Meloenstraat takes about 10 minutes, same for trainstationn, the supermarket is 3 minutes away.
