OpenVPN Hackathon 2019

This year's hackathon is organized by Antonio Quartulli

We will stick to the format of the previous years, which means attendance is in principle limited to "active developers that are also regularly contributing to #openvpn-devel or the mailing list". We should have enough space in the meeting room for 10-14 devs.

When?

The hackathon will take place from Friday November 8th 2019 to Sunday November 10th.

Where?

The Hackathon will be held in a meeting room fully reserved for us with 24h access (as long as I am around) within the "Impact Hub Trentino" co-working space. Full address: Via Roberto da Sanseverino, 95 - Trento - Italy "Impact Hub Trentino" is a co-working space in Trento, North-Eastern Italy and it is part of an international network of co-working spaces. Some of you may have already heard about the "Impact Hub" brand.

The co-working space provides free wifi, a pantry and some vending machines. There is no "free food", but I'll see if I can arrange some basic catering for the event.

The venue is conveniently located nearby the city center which translates to several accommodations and restaurants in range.

City

By Italian standards Trento is a small but very nice and safe city. It hosts a university with around 17k students, who contribute to the good feeling and vibe. The city is surrounded by amazing mountains which offer incredible landscapes and are absolutely easy to reach (even for day trips).

The city center is fairly small and you can visit it all by foot. Tickets for local trains and buses to go around the area can be purchased online with the OpenMove? app (so no need to fiddle with vending machines or ticket offices).

How to get there

  • By air: Trento does not have its own commercial airport. The closest airport is Verona (VRN) - 96km/1h by car - which is small, but connected to a couple of hubs in Europe (i.e. flying Lufthansa or Alitalia). Flying to Venice (VCE), Bergamo (BGY) or Bologna (BLQ) is also an option, but the commute to Trento is longer. Flying to Innsbruck (Austria) may also be feasible, but it's still quite far.
  • By train: Trento train station is in the center of the city and quite close to the venue. Several trains stop there (also Deutsche Bahn trains). The major railway company in Italy can be found at https://www.trenitalia.com/en.html
  • By Car: Trento sits next to the A22 motorway, which connects the center to the various airports, the rest of Italy and Austria/Germany?.
