Hackathon logistics

From the standup log:


we need to agree on costs and get tickets going
1 or 2 days planning in first week

@species can you be in Witzenhausen on the 7th?

@alabaeye could be there in the 2nd week

technic decision for the geo-database is set for the 8th (might be a little later that week, but for the beginning of the meeting)

@almereyda how about you?

If it is really needed…
Do you have any specific trains in mind, what would be my departure time?

@species I browsed trains, and basically they cost the same, so you can
choose. I think you would prefere overnight. I think you got more insight
on possibilites form Graz to Witzenhausen, as some offers do not go all way.

@josefkreitmayer in fact, I do prefer traveling during the day. From my experience, I can’t get much sleep in night trains anyway. So I would prefer to use the time for work.

It’s ok. Also @almereyda will be travelling on the 8th. @josefkreitmayer please buy the tickets for both so that we are ready to start at 18:00 with a small round getting to the topic of the geodatabase, and then go to dinner.

Yes, I am free to come from February 8 'til 20.
I am happy with any arrival train, but would like to be back in Berlin the late afternoon for a friend’s 30th birthday party later on.

hello @almereyda, good to hear from you! : )

which date are you writing about?



please send me the information on the trains you want to take?

SSEDAS is getting worrysome (partially), and 15mmm needs to be finalized.
