We are happy to announce the official EmacsConf 2019 Zurich (CH)
satellite! For the satellite, there will be a physical venue where we
will gather, watch remote and hold live talks whilst enjoying good
discussions as well as food.
In accord with discussions with the organizers of the original virtual
conference (Amin Bandali and Sacha Chua), the satellite will be an
official EmacsConf venue.
The Zurich satellite will be free (as in beer) for guests. Venue and
food will be provided by 200ok llc (200ok.ch) whose founders are very
happy Emacs users.
