    If you're staying that far south anyway, the Ethiopian restaurant on International Drive (there's only one) is pretty good, too.
    Thanks to all for a fun couple days!

    (Jessica) Just got in the Disney airport shuttle. Might be a while until I can find out a bar... Keep me posted if you are already drinking somewhere 👍

    I hope it's pretty safe to head over towards Swan and Dolphin, right?

    This place is a maze. It took me half an hour to get to my room from the parking lot.

    @lpantano Heh, I meant the Beach Resort (it's the overflow rooms for those of us who booked late)

    Sounds good. Shula's lounge is the meeting spot thanks for making a decision. I have to finish my talk and then will come by. Spread the word to anyone else around.
    jessMaia
    @jessMaia
    Where is the Shula's lounge located?
    At the Swan and Dolphin? ( I stopped to watch fireworks)
    Brad Chapman
    @chapmanb
    It's on the Dolphin side. I'm not sure exactly where but most of them are right off the lobby.
    Chris Fields
    @cjfields
    Was distracted by the fireworks as well

    @jessMaia
    I'm here at the Shula's bar!

    @cjfields
    Got distracted by ice cream
    I'm distracted a lot
    Shulas steakhouse?
    Hilmar Lapp
    @hlapp
    Now there's the third fireworks.
    Brad Chapman
    @chapmanb
    On my way now. I think the Lounge is separate from the Steakhouse but not sure.

    @robinandeer
    Difficult to find, will walk from Swan :P

    I added a blurb to the slides and outcome about the syringe pump I was working on the past few days. Feel free to modify and/or cut it if it is not a good fit/appropriate.

    @chapmanb
    Dave, that is so great -- thanks for including it. I'll ping Mike as well on the FamiLAB slack to get his contribution. Thank you again for everything.

    Hi, I'm Markus and I will attend this years codefest :smiley:. I just realized that the timetable on the website (https://www.open-bio.org/wiki/Codefest_2017) under logistics has wrong dates (Wednesday July 6th and Thursday July 7th instead of Thursday 20th and Friday 21st).
    Brad Chapman
    @chapmanb
    Markus, thanks so much for the heads up. Apologies, bad copy/paste/edit from last year -- I updated it now. Glad you'll be at Codefest this year.
    Markus J. Ankenbrand
    @iimog
    Thanks, I'm looking forward to being there :smiley:

    Hi! I just registered for the codefest. Looking forward to see many you (again) in Prague!
    @heuermh - did you decide if you are going in person or doing remote..?
    Spencer Bliven
    @sbliven
    Looking forward to seeing you too @stain! Thanks for the reminder to register myself.
    Stian Soiland-Reyes
    @stain
    Right! Quite easy now to register for the BOSC Codefest.
    still.. I think it's time for BOSC to move away from ISMB.. 600 EUR for two days!??
    Martin Cech
    @martenson
    Especially in Prague, which is not that expensive.
    Stian Soiland-Reyes
    @stain
    yeah.. I was at ApacheCon in a rather posh hotel in Budapest, that cost 275 EUR for 3 days (+2 tutorial days if you wanted). ISMB now is 600 EUR for 2 days academic -- up to 1000 EUR for 4 days if you are corporate. And I believe ISCB still have a massive money reserve - $2.1 millions
    Brad Chapman
    @chapmanb
    So happy there will be so many people at Codefest and BOSC, I'm looking forward to it. We're currently looking into options for making BOSC cheaper, thanks for letting us know it makes it hard to attend.

    @heuermh
    @stain I hope to be able to make it, still confirming travel budget
    Chris Fields
    @cjfields
    I'm very likely participating remotely this year, our state still doesn't have a budget and out-of-state travel is very problematic (I haven't seen any requests granted). My travel expenses are reimbursed from those funds.
    Stian Soiland-Reyes
    @stain
    Great, @heuermh - understand the budget constraints. At least the hotels are not that expensive..
    You can always telcon, although of course it's not the same..
    @cjfields even out of state is not allowed? :-/
    Chris Fields
    @cjfields
    @stain it's not impossible, just extremely difficult
    but I've basically been told re: out-of-country "Don't bother, they won't approve it"
    Stian Soiland-Reyes
    @stain
    I'm trying to find a hotel that is somewhat inbetween CodeFest location and BOSC .. any advice?
