 +==== 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. 
 + 
 +:!: Please see below for the alternatives being discussed. 
 + 
 +==== new X2Go Community Event 2014 - as-of-yet-unnamed ==== 
 + 
 +Tentative date: Some time between 2014-09-19 and 2014-10-26 
 + 
 +For 2014, the following alternatives are currently under discussion:​ 
 + 
 +  * **WTFX2GOBBQ2014KTHXBYE** - one-day BBQ in Ulm, like the original 2012 plan ("pure fun" gathering; no electricity,​ no wifi, bad cell phone reception, just like on the HackTrains; camping-style sleepover possibility) 
 +  <note important>​ 
 +  * Pros: Location, BBQ Coal, etc. provided by BAUR-ITCS, sleepover is free 
 +  * Cons: no "work and play" gathering 
 +  </note> 
 +  * **X2Go@Essen2014** - two- or three-day event at LinuxHotel, Essen ("work and play" gathering; grid power, wifi, hotel style rooms, youth hostel-like service, recreational facilities available, sightseeing tours/group entertainment available in the evening) 
 +  <note important>​ 
 +  * Pros: Located pretty much in the center of Germany, equal distance for all German-based participants of the core dev team, Mike#1 would most likely be able to take part, very low rate for rooms 
 +  * Cons: Not free-as-in-beer,​ comparatively long journey for the participants from southern Germany compared to the last two events 
 +  </​note>​ 
 +  * **X2GoGoesBackToTheRoots2014** - two- or three-day event at Forsthaus Treuchtlingen,​ ("work and play" gathering; grid power, wifi, hotel accomodation, ​ recreational facilities available, sightseeing tours available in the evening) 
 +  <note important>​ 
 +  * Pros: Organized by Heinz himself, Alex would probably be able to take part due to the proximity 
 +  * Cons: Most likely too far away for Mike#1, again :-(, hotel accomodation at regular rates (or at least way more expensive than at LinuxHotel),​ hotel rooms are scattered around the city, not as many recreational/​entertainment options as at LinuxHaus 
 +  </​note>​

 +===== Past Events ===== 
 + 
 +==== 2014 ==== 
 + 
 +=== X2Go on FLOSS Weekly #295 (2014-05-21) ===

 +==== 2013 ==== 
 + 
 +=== 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 [[http://​www.lihas.de|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 [[http://​www.gestuet-marbach.de/​pb/,​Lde/​Startseite/​Service/​English+Site|state-run stud farm.]]  
 +It seems that nobody remembered to take pictures, though. :-( 
 + 
 +=== DebConf 2013 === 
 +  * [[http://​meetings-archive.debian.net/​pub/​debian-meetings/​2013/​debconf13/​webm-high/​960_X2Go_Terminal_Server_Suite_and_Debian.webm|Talk on X2Go]] by Mike Gabriel (August 2013) 
 + 
 +=== Google Summer or Code 2013 === 
 +  * The X2Go Project did not get accepted for GSOC2013 
 + 
 +==== 2012 ==== 
 + 
 +=== 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)
