This is mainly of interest to the German members of our community, but maybe also German-speaking users of the neighbouring countries: Godot will be present as the Kiel Open Source and Linux Days (Kieler Open Source und Linux Tage, alias Kilux) in Kiel, Germany, on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 September 2017.
Several core Godot developers will be there (Andreas alias Hinsbart, Thomas alias karroffel and myself), and we hope to see many other members of the community at our booth. If you plan to come to the event, don't hesitate to add yourself to our Framadate so that we know whom to expect :)
We should also have some cool Godot T-Shirts on sale for a fair price!
But that's not all - we are teaming up with the OpenHMD developers who will have their booth right next to ours. OpenHMD is a free and open source API and set of drivers for Virtual Reality (VR) devices, and they have been working with our main VR contributor Bastiaan to implement their API in Godot 3.0.
This means that they will bring the VR devices, we will bring the (work-in-progress) VR capable game engine, and together we will showcase demos of fully free and open source Virtual Reality! So by all means, come to our stands and give it a try!
On Saturday 16, we will we have two organized events:
The event takes place at the Kieler Innovations- und Technologiezentrum in Kiel, Germany, from 10:00 to 18:00 both days. See the visitor infos for more details, as well as the programme to plan ahead which talks and workshops you would like to attend. There is no entrance fee, as usual in such free software community events.
The event is mainly German-speaking, so all of us Godot developers are of course also English-speaking (some of us even being Dutch and French), so if you're in the geographical area, don't let the language barrier put you off. Our Godot presentation and workshop are planned in German for now, but if we see that the attendants would be like them in English, we can easily switch :)
