Fractal Hackfest 2018

May 10-13, 2018

Description

A small event for core Fractal contributors to plan our roadmap going forward.

Venue

This file can be loaded in GNOME Maps to display points of interest.

Epitech, a software engineering school, is kindly hosting us. It is located at 4 rue du dôme. The easiest way to get there is by tram. Station “Broglie” (150m from the venue) can be reached via the B, C and F lines, station “Homme de fer” is a 300m further away and can be reached via the A and D lines. Of course Strasbourg is a small city and everything is in walking distance, so walking is an option too.

Accommodation

When looking for accommodation, we recommend using booking or airbnb and looking at the location of available places on the map. The city center of Strasbourg is an island and the venue is right in the middle of it. So anything located on the island or around it is fair game. You can even push it further if it’s near the tram. If you aren’t sure the option you’re looking into is a good idea, feel free to ask Alexandre to have a look.
