Status: Date and Location (save for some last-minute Covid-19 related changes) confirmed.
Date: 2020-09-18 to 2020-09-20
Why not Linuxhotel: Due to Covid-19, we have limited the registration to participants from the DACH region. Carpooling for several hours in times of Covid-19 is a bad idea, plus it doesn't really make sense to ferry the team from southern Germany to Essen and back, when all participants are native to southern Germany and/or Austria/Switzerland.
If you're interested in joining us physically, please contact Stefan Baur. Note that we will not be providing accomodation this year (so if you cannot commute daily, you will have to look for a hotel/hostel room yourself), but we still need your contact info if you wish to take part in person, due to current Covid-19 health regulations. Also, you will be required to wear a non-medical everyday mask or comparable mouth and nose cover (of course, better masks like N95/KN95/FFP2/FFP3 are okay as well, as long as they do not have an exhalation valve), both when using public transport (and while waiting at the platforms/stops), as well as inside shackspace (you will likely be allowed to take the mask off while sitting at your desk, but we cannot guarantee that yet).
For joining us virtually, you can join in any time, even on short notice, no sign-up required (it would still be nice if you'd let us know in advance, so we can make sure we have sufficient server and streaming capacity).
Current plan is to have a hybrid event:
Usually, this section would read “As always, we are open to sponsorships”, but Covid-19 changes that as well.
As this year's event is a hybrid event with minimal on-site participation, there is no need for event sponsorships.
CFD.direct, who also sponsor our cloud-based macOS build servers for 2020 - had already pledged to sponsor this event with 700 EUR (plus VAT), a 200 EUR increase over their usual X2Go event sponsorships in the previous years. Upon hearing about our change of plans, they decided to add another 300 EUR on top, so now we're at 1000 EUR (with no VAT incurring) - which we will now use to tackle the long-lasting clipboard issues in NX.
KLO Ingeniería Informática had already made a 100 EUR donation (currently in escrow on the ORCA account) a while ago, also aimed at fixing said NX clipboard issues, so we currently have a total of 1100 EUR at our disposal for this.
ALL TIMES CEST
For Q&A, we will try to take questions via Jitsi, but also via YouTube chat and possibly IRC - we'll see how that goes.
Friday is a purely virtual event

You will most likely hear us talk in German, but don't let that stop you from interrupting us and asking questions in English. We're monitoring the IRC channel #x2go on irc.libera.chat as well as the YouTube chat.

Note for Stefan: Make sure shackspace has sufficient paper towels and disinfectant; also face masks if budget allows.
