- How to improve bug reports, bug fixing and development workflow using team notifications

- Advanced usage of Tiki Plugins especially Plugin LIST training (Jonny?)
- Please yes +1 Torsten Fabricius
- Code sprint to finalize the Tiki 14 and 15 Bootstrapizing ?

We can book local club (need to check soon if it is still free in that week) in theater for $50-150 USD for a public presentation(s) of Tiki - details: http://www.divadelniklub.cz/o-klubu/ (czech, Kč 1000 (CZK) ~= $50 USD)Alternatively we couldwill do just a small one in local Library, Museum orPontopolis Center...
- Some nature trip(s) and/or sightseeing to clear our heads off the code
- Lot of freshly milled coffee and local brewery beers! ;-)
- In the end of the week there is two day multicultural music festival we can visit and enjoy: http://www.colourmeeting.cz/?_=en
- If there is interest, Jyhem could make a half-day crash course on Tiki-D3.js integration. If even more interest, we might brainstorm about D3.js Tiki plugins for pie charts or bar charts (this latter part would certainly be best after pluginList training or where would the data come from?)
- Tiki.org sites rejuvenation
- Upgrade info.tw.org to Tiki 14
- Plan and do some content reorganization
- Implement and enhance Organic Groups Addon
- Plan and enhance streamlined notifications
- Possible topics for discussion/action:
- Making the site header (navbar) more responsive - strategies to feature-ize easy site header/navbar admin. Can the “super-module fluffy” do it? Or is some template revision needed? Can multiple menus be combined, or alternative menu types be available (“slidebars”)?
- Should dropdowns of all menus open on hover rather than click? (So Bootstrap and Superfish menus behave the same.)
+1 Torsten Fabricius
- gezzaz topics:
- discuss about moving to Zend Framework 2 (also ZF3 comes soon)
- how to have a drag&drop, visual, easy-to-use tracker screen editor, screen schemes, etc using bootstrap grid, listplugin and other tools already in Tiki
- CRM as an addon
- translation via transifex and turn languages into addons
- addon “marketplace” (maybe create addon.tiki.org)
- more ideas welcome! ...

How to get there, etc.
If we all meet in Prague, there is no worries how to get there as we will go by train all together most probably.
Anyway, we can add some tips how to get there for the adventure souls who wish to get to the destination on their own ;)
- International flights to Prague, Vaclav Havel (formerly Ruzyně) airport.
luci can pick up people at the airport if the timetable of ppl’s arrivals is reasonable.(As everyone seems to come on their own and stay few days in Prague prior to going to TikiFest, luci will not pick up ppl at the airport). See Prague section below on how to get to the center and around.
- For flights see e.g. Cheap flights LON-PRG on Kayak.com
- For People coming from Europe, here are some travelling options:
- Bus (cheaper) to Prague (or Brno - luci can pick up people only in one place though, so Prague seems the most probable destination for abroad people ;-))
- Train (more comfortable) to Prague (or Brno, same note as above)
- Czech Railways: http://www.cd.cz/en/default.htm
- Own car or bike (Torsten ? ;-))
To move in Prague (you will need some little cash probably so maybe first get some CZK (Czech crowns or Kč), especially to get from the airport (There should be some ATMs at the Airport at gate D (Terminal 1).):
- There is a comfortable public transportation (DPP) “Airport Express” for 60 CZK (Public transport tickets are NOT VALID on Airport Express!) bus going to the center (central Railway station) or to connections to subway (bus 100 or 119) which goes then to center too - generally it is not recommended to use taxi in Prague unless you are overpacked with stuff! (taxi is not worth of the money - the prices are horrible!) - tickets can be bought from driver (Airport Express) or in ticket vending machines using cash (CZK)
or via mobile (pay by SMS)(appears by SMS you can pay only if you own one of the Czech operators SIM card so not very useful for us)
- More about the tickets here: http://www.prague.fm/5862/public-transport-tickets/
- More info about the Prague tranportation in general at the DPP site: http://www.dpp.cz/en/public-transit-to-prague-airport/
- Additional useful info about public transportation: http://www.myczechrepublic.com/prague/prague-airport-bus.html and here: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Travel-g274707-s303/Prague:Czech-Republic:Public.Transportation.html
- Then there is the LiftAGo service - sounds like a good alternative to nasty and expensive taxi: https://www.liftago.com/
Some people will come 1-2 days early so lets put some accomodation options for Prague here...
There will be one shared “TikiHouse” in a village close to Polička at least for up to around 6-8 people available. Other options depend on the number of participants.
For people preferring hotels and other sort of accommodation, here are some local options:
- http://www.ubytovani-fortna.cz/ (CZ only)
- http://parkany.cz/ubytovani/ (CZ only)
- http://penzionnachalupe.cz/ubytovani.php (CZ only - this is closest to the TikiHouse)
