Location

Berlin. More precision coming soon!

What's the deal with Monday/Tuesday? Should I attend?

The Monday and Tuesday part of the week will be buckling down to get better synchronized on our various funded projects. Gunner will help us focus on brainstorming and committing to milestones and deliverables. If you are a current contributor to these projects, we would love to have you there even if you're not an employee/contractor. But if you want to learn how to get involved in Tor, or how to start contributing to these projects, your best bet is to join us starting on Wednesday.

Specific projects:

Airport

Berlin has two active airports: Tegel (TXL) in the northwest of Berlin with 21M passengers per year and Schönefeld (SXF) in the southeast of Berlin with 7M passengers per year. You'll more likely want to fly into Tegel (TXL), but be sure to also check Schönefeld (SXF) in case it has better connections or prices.

Lodging

TBD
