Contrary to [[OsmoCon2018]], the Osmocom Developer Conference 2018 ([[OsmoDevCon2018]]) is an event *by project members for project members*.

As such, the primary audience is people who have been contributing to at least one of the Osmocom projects.

13 1 laforge
It is *not targeted at users*.

29 1 laforge
In the rooms of "IN-Berlin e.V.":http://www.in-berlin.de/, Lehrter Str. 53, 10557 Berlin, Germany, the Universe. ("Map":https://osm.org/go/0MZvv6U8I?node=412766878)
30 1 laforge
31 1 laforge
The meeting / seminar / conference room at IN-Berlin is located on ground floor and has windows facing east.
32 1 laforge
In front of those windows is a road + sidewalk which is directly in north-south direction,
33 1 laforge
i.e. it _may_ be possible to set up some (GPS, Thuraya, etc.) antennas on the sidewalk, if required.
34 1 laforge
Some kind of pole+stand is required, though.

h2. Format
37 1 laforge
38 1 laforge
39 1 laforge
The format of this workshop is not primarily formal lectures/talks.  It's more like "guided discussions", i.e. there are topics and each topic will get an "owner" who should introduce the topic and lead the discussion related to it.
