Hello shout-out to all other organizers of regional events,
@thomasmboa @pablocremades @louisebez @hikinghack @nanocastro @squaresolid

I would love to have an informal video call to hear and discuss more about your visions for the regional event that we are all preparing now! We could discuss some earlier experiences, share planned schedules to see if there are intersting overlaps, find synergies of topics and people.

I just arrived in Indonesia and we are (slowly) getting down to the detail planning of our plans here in Indonesia, all paperwork done, contracts signed and the funds arrived on the account. Ready to roll.


Da wäre ich gern dabei, bei dem Video call wie funktioniert das? Jitsi? Freut mich, dass du gut in Indonesien angekommen bist.

Hati hati,

Yes that would be great! I am thinking of starting a forum thread for our regional event that I will just kinda update and document about stuff we are doing. Maybe all the regional events groups could do a similar thing, or perhaps there is a better way to asynchronously cross share on this platform?
