OSGeo Hacking event in a monastry near Bolsena (June 2008)

When: 16-22 June 2008

Where: Bolsena - Italy

I, Jeroen, have been thinking of getting an OSGeo "hacking" or code sprint event setup in an Italian monastry (here). Friends of mine take care of the place which is overlooking Lago Bolsena and offers space to 25 people in small bedrooms :-) . Its probably one of the coolest places for such an event. Quiet, isolated, simple and serene. There's a good wireless and wired internet connection, although I wouldn't bet my hand on it if we all start to download satellite images. It should be perfect for SVN, IRC and mail.

The cost would be about 200 Euro per person for the week (food not included, we can organize that separately). There's a large kitchen and large dining space. Obviously, since the weather most likely permits, we would eat outside overlooking the lake. Have a look yourself, including looking at the photo gallery.

If you are interested, please sign up below?

If there's enough interest I can make a booking. There would be 7 days time, so it can also be divided into smaller time chunks that are occupied by different projects.

As soon as there's a clearly preferred week, I will try to block that one. Please indicate multiple weeks if you have the flexibility.

[1] there are options to do outdoor activities like tracking. A guide can be organized and the cost is very reasonable.
