This is the replacement event for X2Go: The Gathering 2023, which could not take place due to the Covid-19 pandemic and scheduling conflicts.
Location: 100% online
Date: 2023-12-10 for the orca e.V. meeting, expect 2023-12-11 to 2023-12-15 for the actual “The Spread” event
Event type: orca e.V. meeting on Sunday at 11:00 CET, followed by 5 evenings (starting at 20:00 CET) with one or two short talks/presentations/demos per day, around 20-30 minutes each, followed by discussions, jointly working on open tasks, bug-squashing, “open coding”
Sponsorship: As this is a purely virtual event, we are not really in need for event sponsors. However, X2Go could still use some more donations, so if you have a few $$$/€€€/£££ to spare, you can find our donation forms here:
One sponsor that we didn't expect, but are happy to have, is WorkAdventure - they are providing us with a free meeting room in a 2D virtual world for this year's event (see below for instructions and a screenshot).
Watch this space for updates.
This is where the link to the Jitsi meeting room/WorkAdventure map and the live stream(s) will be posted (probably around 10:00 CET on Sunday for orca, and around 18:00 CET Monday to Friday for X2Go).
We're still using Jitsi, like in the previous years, but this time, with a “WorkAdventure” 2D virtual world wrapped around it.
If you've never used WorkAdventure, please try to log in a little early, so you can customize your avatar (“Woka”), check your Audio and Video settings, etc.
Below is a screenshot of our virtual meeting room.
