As you know, we love to build great things together! We have already discussed it before at FOSDEM and now I'm excited to announce that the NethServer community will meet at its first own conference in Italy.
Our idea is to make this a learning and organizational event, so the aim is to arrange technical talks and discussions around how to make NethServer better and develop our community in the best way.
Remember, NethServer belongs to all of us. With NethServer we make sysadmins’ lives easier leveraging the power of Linux without the complexity.
Program and venue
First day 29th September (optional) we are invited as usual to attend the Nethesis Partner Meeting at Palacongressi in Riccione, Italy (venue to be defined). We'll have a stand where we can spread the NethServer word and I'll bring swag and stuff to make the booth look nice. We can gather and meet familiar faces, drinking good wine and eating italian food (Official language for the event is Italian but with some interpreters we can make it anyway!). The day will end with a dinner to which everyone is invited to participate.
Second day 30th September, we will move to another venue where we can actually kick off the community event.
NethServer Conference is going to take place at Villa Matarazzo. Located in Fanano (10 km from Riccione), on Marche hills, overlooking the Adriatic Sea, in front of the Castle of Gradara (PU),
We want this to be an event where everyone who works on and with NethServer is invited, that includes members, partners, and supporters.
The event will be free and we are pretty sure to find sponsorships for food and venue at least.
To make this a real community event, I'd like to ask everybody to help and discuss the conference organization!
Which topics do you want to discuss at the event?
Do you have any suggestion for the organization? Do you have questions? Let’s talk.
We will organize and plan the event here on community and you can get involved right now!
I’m preparing an open registration form and a call for papers to submit.
For now, save the date! 29-30 September 2017
That is going be a HUGE opportunity to meet the NethServer Community as a whole!
