GLAMP #1 2021

Posted on 2021-07-17 by ungleich

Tl;DR

Get your tent, connect it to power and 10Gbit/s Internet in the midst of the Glarner mountains. Happenening Thursday 2021-08-19 to Sunday 2021-08-22. Apply for participation by mail (information at the bottom of the page).

Introduction

It has been some time since our last Hack4Glarus and we have been missing all our friends, hackers and participants. At ungleich we have been watching the development of the Coronavirus world wide and as you might know, we have decided against a Hack4Glarus for this summer, as the Hack4Glarus has been an indoor event so far.

No Hack4Glarus = GLAMP

However, we want to try a different format that ensures proper safety. Instead of an indoor Hack4Glarus in Linthal, we introduce the Glarus Camp (or GLAMP in short) to you. An outdoor event with sufficient space for distancing. As a camping site we can use the surrounding of the Hacking Villa, supported by the Hacking Villa facilities.

Compared to the Hack4Glarus, the GLAMP will focus more on relaxation, hangout than being a hackathon. We think times are hard enough to give everyone a break.

The setting

Many of you know the Hacking Villa in Diesbach already. Located just next to the pretty waterfall and the amazing Legler Areal. The villa is connected with 10 Gbit/s to the Data Center Light and offers a lot of fun things to do.

Coronavirus measures beforehand

To ensure safety for everyone, we ask everyone attending to provide a reasonable proof of not spreading the corona virus with one of the following proofs:

All participants will be required to take an short antigen test on site.

Please do not attend if you feel sick for the safety of everyone else.
