I have some good news, and some bad ones.
The good news is that the sprint is happening. Book your flights!
Generally, you’ll want to fly to either Vienna (VIE) or Prague (PRG), arrive at the airport on Sunday the 8th at latest, and depart Saturday at earliest.
The best way to get from there to the sprint is by train; I’ll provide instructions next week.
Now the bad news: accomodation. The PSF didn’t manage to get a hotel block, despite trying since late May. I thought everything’s on track, so I brought it up too late, and… yesterday I found out that there’s a giant fair overlapping with the sprint, and most hotels in the city are sold out.
Lessons to be learned all around. Thanks to everyone who helped me look for solutions!
That gives me/us two options. I’d like to judge your interest here; the poll will be open until Monday.
We sprint in Brno as originally planned. You find and book your own hotel, AirBnB or apartment. Couch-surf if that’s your thing.
The PSF will reimburse up to $80/night, and according to an AirBnB search there are enough places in that price range within ~20 min from Red Hat. Everyone can get a room.
I’ll provide more info and instructions early next week, and I’ll help in any way I can.
This would be much easier for me to organize – I know the city and many people in it.
The other option is sprinting in another city, in a hotel with a meeting room.
I don’t think it would be that different for most of you, travel-wise: a few hours more (or less) to get there and back on the weekend before and after. But it’d be an unfamiliar place for everyone.
The poll is public. If you’re not comfortable with that (or can’t vote in this category), feel free to send me a message.
- I’d prefer Brno
- Don’t care
- I’d prefer a hotel
- Definitely a hotel for me
I’ll try to be as online as I can this weekend, and I’ve asked @Phyllis from the PSF to keep an eye here as well.
