Maemo Summit 2008


Join the first Maemo Summit

Berlin, September 19-20 @ c-base - right after the OSiM World

Free registration - Who is attending

In Maemo Summit 2008 you will learn more about Nokia's Linux platform and its evolution. Meet the core team, 3rd party professional developers and key community contributors. Showcase and discuss your work. Learn, share, hack. And have fun!

The Open Source in Mobile World conference is an interesting venue to know more about the business and technical context of the Maemo platform. Nokia is active in this event and invites the Maemo community to join it. After the conference we propose the first Maemo Summit calling to all contributors.

[edit] Venue

The Maemo Summit is held in the headquarter of c-base and the contiguous eti Schauspielschule Berlin.

c-base is a non-profit association which has about 300 members. The purpose of this association is to increase knowledge and know-how regarding computer software, hardware and data networks (more). eti Berlin is a school of actors based in a building with several rooms and a total surface available of 1.200m2. The perfect mix, full of creativity!

See the videos.

c-base is in the very Mitte of Berlin. Map

[edit] Participants


It's the first Maemo Summit and it is good to know in advance who plans to attend, to fine tune practicalities and have enough space, connection, drinks, food.

Yes, the entrance is free. Registration is still requested for planning purposes.

[edit] Travel

See when people are arriving in and leaving Berlin.

Apparently there are options as affordable as 20€ including taxes from Stansted! Share your travel tips from different locations.

[edit] Streaming video

Since nearly all of the attendees are carrying internet-connected video cameras, it is possible that someone may find a way to stream live video of the event. (Bug 1889 makes this harder, but it should still be possible...)
