Gopher Gala 2016

  • 22 de ene de 2016 · 19:00
  • BigSEO

Hi!

We're thinking about running a Local HQ for next year's Gopher Gala, happening in January 22 to 24.

It is a 2 days long internationally distributed coding contest, where people, in teams of 1 to 4 members, work on an application mostly based in Go. Those chosen by the community and the expert judges chosen for the event, may win prizes.

Our new sponsor BigSEO kindly offered their offices to hold our Local HQ... Thank you so much! I want to thank you also Ivan Fraixedes for helping bringing such cool people to us!

We'll have the offices for us from 9 to 20, both Saturday and Sunday, though teams can keep hacking during the rest of the weekend, from any other place.

If you have a project or idea, you need to register it, but remember you can't code anything until Saturday, at 2 o'clock, local time.

Steps left are:

• Agree on the Friday meeting location.

• If you already have a project or idea, register it at Gopher Gala, and share here, so people can ask for joining. Remember 1 to 4 people per team. I also prepared a form to share these, which adds them to a spreadsheet, so others can see and think about joining.

• Find out some more sponsors to pay food and drinks. We can decide to put money in a common pool for drinks and some food, alternatively. Or anyone manage their food. Please, veggies, vegans, or anyone with allergies and so on, send me a message so I can count with that.

Regards!

    I hope next year BCN will be Local HQ again!

      And we'll be, at least, twice the amount of hackers

    Will we be meeting at Obama Pub or at BigSeo's offices for today's 19:00 o'clock meeting ?

    I updated the place of the event, for today.
    Tonight I'll update it again with the place of the venue

    Hi! I'm interested in to participate, but unfortunetly I can only do it in a remote mode.

    Any else bcngopher interested in creating a remote team?

    22 de enero de 2016

  • Ignasi F.

    And, finally, I got only one sponsor to pay for one lunch/dinner. I would suggest on making some common fund and voting for what we want to have for the rest of lunches/dinners. Of course, this is just a suggestion to make the event slightly more social. Anyone's other option might be good as well :)

    The space includes a set of sofas, and a space where we can eat more or less comfortably. It also includes a water fountain, a microwave oven, a fridge, and, of course, a couple of bathrooms.

    22 de enero de 2016

  • Ignasi F.

    I don't know how many of you smoke. I do. Smoking in the premises is not allowed, but there's an open corridor in the entrance where it is allowed.

    22 de enero de 2016

  • Ignasi F.

    The space has neighbours living there, so we've been asked specially to do not disturb them. We should not be too noisy, and having music out loud won't be allowed, so I would recommend take your headphones with you.

    22 de enero de 2016

  • Ignasi F.

    Also, the venue is the working space of a company. We got a certain free space they have already, but this might not be enough, and getting some space would require moving stuff around. Anything we move, we'll need to get back in place once we ended. Of course, we'll need to clean whatever we got dirty, so let's make it together, and it will be faster.

    22 de enero de 2016

  • Ignasi F.

    In second place, The venue is really a cold place. We'll have one or two heaters, but the space is huge, and it could take some time until it gets warm enough for many people. We recommend you to bring clothes enough to stay warm until the environment is enough.

    22 de enero de 2016

  • Ignasi F.

    As Ivan said, there are something's to take into account. Thank you for recalling these.
    In first place, we'll be sticking with the Go Community CoC https://golang.org/conduct
    Please read this document carefully, and respect it.
    About reporting on that, I think the best choice right now is you contact me directly, emailing me, or in slacking me at gophergala.slack.com

    22 de enero de 2016

  • Ivan F.

    My comments don't fit, so I'm arranging to send you in another way;

    We'll deliver to you ASAP, please remember to read them before tomorrow.

    22 de enero de 2016

  • Ivan F.

    @ignasiFosch Thanks for your gratefulness, but the gratitude is more for you and your time dedicated to Golang BCN community,

    @ignasiFosh <- "Thanks so much"

    First of all, my apologies not to have been written this message before (I'm pretty busy with a hard deadline for a freelancing project) or even better to coordinate with @ignasiFosch for the communication.

    However, I've thought that it was better to let you know as soon as possible, so I'm just sending a second message, with those due the number of character limitations of meetup comments.

    22 de enero de 2016

  • Ignasi F.

    For this Friday pre-Gopher Gala meeting, I'd suggest to meet up around 19:00 in Obama's English Pub (https://www.google.es/maps/place/Obama+English+Pub+Barcelona/@41.3886641,2.1664221,18.84z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0000000000000000:0x06b21507c5bb54a5), unless anyone else has a better option for all.

    I just realized that the RSVP for new attendees got closed this week, I updated the event page, so it's open again.

    18 de enero de 2016

  • Ignasi F.

    We've been added to http://gophergala.com/local/

    I'm happy to announce that BigSEO.es offered their offices to hold our hackathon. I've updated the event description with details soon.

    In the meanwhile, I'm trying to find sponsors to pay for food and drinks. I already got one, and asked some others, but it would be nice to find out more. We're 13 people, right now, the plan would be to go on pizzas, or similar, nothing really expensive, and we can offer to add them as group sponsors. For allergies and preferences, please, let me know.

    I already published a form for those who have an idea to share, so others willing to participate, can see and think about joining.

    Finally, I'd do a proposal on meeting this Friday somewhere in the city center, might be some bar, or similar, to met each one, talk about the last event details and news, and talk about the projects, teams, and so on.

    I asked Dani, CTO of https://waynabox.com/ to know if they could lend the office. He told me that they cannot due they are still building the office, besides that they have 24 hours support, so there are always there working.

    So discarded.

    About the project or ideas, I am thinking about a command line tool or library for ElasticSearch management commands, like status checking, rerouting, and so on.

    5 de enero de 2016

  • Ignasi F.

    Here's the list of possible places:
    - http://www.blitzgracia.com/ I know people there to ask for prices.
    - http://www.nidok.com/espacios/sala-agora/ The most cheap I found
    - http://bcn575.com/ Not sure about the prices, should ask
    - http://www.betahaus.es/rent-space-betahaus-bcn/ pretty expensive, but maybe we can talk with someone there

    I had pending to check for some other place which might be for free... but maybe not the whole weekend...

    I discarded Mob Barcelona and CREC since they are very expensive (120 EUR/h and 30 EUR/h)

    Hi!

    I have been looking for some space where we could hold the event. Most available options imply payment of some amount. Most free options I found are not available during weekends, doesn't include Internet access, or are out of the city. There's also the option to hold the event remotely, but I think it's much more interesting to meet together, at least, for some hours during the event.
    The plan would be meeting in some place on Friday, to put in common the projects proposals, get the teams, and maybe talk about them while having a beer. And then, having the working space available for some hours on Saturday and Sunday... But it's harder than I expected.
    And talking about projects, from the responses there are only three projects, but many people hadn't answered... any other proposal?
