This is definetly not about sitting at a booth and waiting for people. We will have a dev room, there will be a social event on saturday evening. Last year I had no time booting up my notebook. (talking to lots of people visiting other projects etc.)
- The link "program" on their site links to "call for papers", is
there a way to get an up to date view of what talks there will be?
they are still on planning the event
- are the talks mostly in german? how much of a problem is it that
I don't speak german?
That shouldn't be a problem. Lot's of talks are in English and pretty much everybody should understand you. But you might ask Jan about how he felt last year.
- is there an entrance fee?
Sure, as community project we'll get vip badges. So we'll have drinks and food for free, too.
- do you guys plan to go both days?
Yes. If you don't want to stay at a hotel you can sleep in our dev room.
Thanks for the clarifications, it seems much more interesting now :) My status is now "maybe". I'll apply on the website.
