X2GoHackTrain 2014 - cancelled :-(

Thanks to German Rail retiring (in Blade Runner style) the heritage railbusses from service, there will be no X2GoHackTrain in 2014. :'( Had they been available, a combination of train ride, BBQ at a lake side, and an optional short hike would have been planned.

Plan for Friday 2014-10-31:

  • breakfast between 0900 hours/9am - 1000 hours/10am local time

X2GoHackTrain 2013 (2013-09-15)

Sadly, both Heinz and Alex weren't able to make it to the 2013 event, but Mihai was back, and Mihai and Stefan were joined by a few fellow Linux/X2Go enthusiasts from LinuxHaus Stuttgart. This time, we had the entire dining car for ourselves as our rolling party location, and after having lunch in the station diner again, we got a guided tour around the stables and horses of the state-run stud farm. It seems that nobody remembered to take pictures, though. :-(

DebConf 2013

Google Summer or Code 2013

  • The X2Go Project did not get accepted for GSOC2013


X2GoHackTrain 2012 (2012-09-30)

X2GoHackTrain 2012 started out as a plan for a company-sponsored BBQ for the X2Go core developers. During the initial planning stages, it turned out that Alex (X2Go Co-Founder) would not be able to attend during summer due to his personal commitments, and by the time he would be able to attend, temperatures would be too low for an enjoyable BBQ.

So, X2GoHackTrain to the rescue: As the owner of the company that wanted to sponsor the BBQ is also a member of a volunteer organization that maintains a heritage Diesel railbus, the decision was made to gather inside the train, have lunch together at a railway station diner along the way, and visit a car museum.

Participants in 2012 were: Heinz-M. Graesing (X2Go Co-Founder), Alex (X2Go Co-Founder), Mihai (X2Go Mac/Win Co-Developer until Mike#2 took over), Stefan (owner of BAUR-ITCS UG and sponsor of the event)
