How to get there

Airport: HAM
There is a bus connection from the airport. A taxi costs about 10 euros in one direction.


A fun weekend of hacking! Google will provide the following facilities on-site:

  • A conference room for the common sessions (40+ people)
  • a few smaller rooms for hacking workshops
  • G5 workstations for the workshops (PENDING)
  • Lunch on Saturday and Sunday (PENDING)

PENDING means this has been authorized but we are still working out the practical details.
