A tradition in the Tiki community, a TikiFest is a meeting between Tiki contributors (that usually only meet online). This is an opportunity to socialize, code and demonstrate and discuss wiki technology and culture, etc.
In eastern France, near the german border.
Unless there are a lot of participants, I (Jyhem) can host comfortably half a dozen people in my roomy place with fibre internet and view on the cathedral. More with less comfort if necessary
Wednesday july 4th to friday, july 5th 2018 Friday, july 6th to thursday, july 12th.
Tikifest Strasbourg 2018 would be held at the same time as Libre Software Meeting 2018 (LSM) which happens in Strasbourg again this year july 7th-12th 2018 . So we can enjoy both
Of course, this means a lightweight TikiFest in terms of work done since we also attend a nearby event but it is ok since we also don't have a stand to man of conferences to prepare. LSM is focused on expanding the Freedom of Free Software to other parts of life, like Free Licences, etc. Libre Software will only be a component, so a workshop on configuring Tiki trackers or such idea might not gather the proper crowd .
BeforeDuring LSM/RMLL2018 in Strasbourg.
Rencontres Mondiales du Logiciel Libre/Libre Software Meeting RMLL 2011 at Strasbourg, France (7.-12. July 2018) which is Free (Libre) as well as free (of charge). Evenings feature Libre Arts Events.
Note that their website does not showcase the event yet, but the call for participation. Now is the time for suggesting events (either in french, english or german!) before april 30th.
Note that it will not focus on highly technical issues, more on the relationship between Free Software/Licenses/Mindframe on society. So I don't believe this is the right place for a Tiki booth. Suggestions are welcome.
For instance, our XWiki friends consider presenting topics related to cryptpad and how opensource fits with building a business and Open Food Facts.
Our preferred option is a lightweight participation to LSM: no stand, presentation, workshop, just attend and enjoy the event.
Everybody who wishes to attend.
|Jean-Marc Libs (Jyhem)||local||local||Will attend and help organise TikiFest and be involved in LSM also somewhat|
|Jonathan Whitson Cloud(Jonath1)||Wednesday 4th (tbc)||Friday 6th (tbc)||First time at a TikiFest.|
- It would be nice to have a profile for a Tiki peopla can setup for managing open source conferences like LSM. Nothing great seems to be available and it would be a great way of getting visibility and contributors
- Upgrade the community piwik to matomo (I think…)
How to come to Strasbourg
The train station is right next to city centre, and everywhere can be reached from there using the tram. Trams drive until 24:30 at night.
Some info: in Strasbourg, having a car is a hindrance, not an advantage. It is difficult to drive around and park. If you come by car, you are likely to leave it parked until you leave again.
Unlikely. The Rhine passes nearly through Strasbourg if you really feel like it.
The nearest airport is the Strasbourg-Entzheim so-called "International" airport. It is dwarfed by nearby bigger airports : Frankfurt, Basel, Baden-Baden. Lufthansa operates a Frankfurt-Strasbourg shuttle.
