SugarCamp Bolzano 2009

Event Details

The FreeSoftwareWeek 2009 will be held from the 7th to 13th November 2009 in Bolzano, Italy. As part of free software week the TIS will host a Sugarcamp. A GNOME Hackfest will happen during that week as well. The camp fits quite well in our release cycle (0.88 planning/hacking) and having the GNOME Hackfest next door will hopefully create nice synergies. The FreeSoftwareWeek will end with the SFScon2009 the annual Free Software conference in South Tyrol.
