Day minus 5. A brief update

07/08/13 23:42 by Andrew Shitov (‎ash‎)

Dear YAPC::Europe attendees,

Five days left before the conference, four days before the pre-conference meeting. Some of the attendees are already in Kiev. The time flies!

Today we did another bunch of small things to make the conference better.

We were examining the possibility to have enough (actually, even more than enough) AC sockets in the venue and the talk rooms. There were a funny story when I asked if there are enough AC sockets in the venue in Riga in 2011, and they said "Yes" and bought about 200 extension cords, which gave an AC socket for every seat in the front rows. Now we have these cords in Kiev :-)

Good news! There will be a Speakers room in the venue. If you speak, you may prepare your talk in a quiet room.

We have finalised the contract with the catering company (as well as with the restaurant for the pre-conference meeting, and the river boat a day ago).

We see that 220 people opened their conference tickets. We hope that you all print it at home and we will avoid the queues and other unpleasant stuff in the venue during the check-in. By the way, don't forget to check in on Foursquare.

If you stay in Dnipro hotel, you may use their public computer room to print a ticket. Ask at the reception of how to get there.

Also, there's one more talk in the schedule. Thomas Klausner (‎domm‎) gives a talk about ‎ZeroMQ‎.

That's mostly all for today.

See you very very soon!
