BeGeistert is an international forum for users, developers and usergroups all about the Be Operating System. In this, it's 18th edition, BeGeistert is going back to the recently renovated Youth Hostel Düsseldorf, the same place that has hosted this community event so many times in the past.
The program for BeGeistert is known to develop in the run up to the event itself, but you can expect a wide array of presentations and workshops, most of which will be directly or indirectly related to Haiku. This will most likely include a Haiku development progress report from one or more of the core Haiku developers, as well as an update on the status of Haiku Inc., the non-profit supporting the Haiku project. There are also plans to present and demo, for the first time in public, a Haiku-based commercial application that has been quietly in development for the last two years.
