BeGeistert is the traditional bi-annual meeting point for the international Haiku user and developer community. The week after the BeGeistert weekend, a coding sprint will be held. Maybe there'll also be another workshop for aspiring coders on Monday, which would be charged separately. All in the same location in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Registration is now possible at the website.
The BG-weekend is 35 EUR including lunch. A night bed & breakfast in the youth hostel costs about 25 EUR.

Planned Activities: 

The coding sprint will be from Monday to Friday in the week after the BeGeistert weekend.
As usual, there will be talks, workshops and presentations. These are currently on the agenda:

  • Ingo Weinhold demonstrates the state of our package management.

  • Oliver Tappe leads the way from SVN to GIT for Haiku's source control

  • Michael Lotz regales us with an account of the first weeks of his half-year Haiku contract and what's planned for the immediate future.

  • Stephan Aßmus shows the in and out of layout management (if he makes it to BeGeistert He'll be there. Yay!)

  • Robert Stiehler shows off his project Voptop.

  • Matt Madia reports of his work for Haiku Inc.

  • Besides these talks and workshops we'll have a "patch hour" where everyone tries to get as many patches from our bugtracker committed to the Haiku trunk.
