On my way now. I think the Lounge is separate from the Steakhouse but not sure.
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.
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).
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.

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..?
Looking forward to seeing you too @stain! Thanks for the reminder to register myself.
still.. I think it's time for BOSC to move away from ISMB.. 600 EUR for two days!??
Especially in Prague, which is not that expensive.
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
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.

@stain I hope to be able to make it, still confirming travel budget
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.
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? :-/
@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"
@stain if you find something good, you might want to post it on the wiki so people can coordinate rides
@cjfields I'll miss you - we had such a great session last year!
Stian -- I booked an AirBnb near BOSC for Peter and I. The plan is to take the train up to Codefest the first two days then be able to walk to the conference. The train system between the two is meant to be good and they're not close enough to make staying in between that convenient (unless you have a car, I guess).
The locations are split by the historic center, I wouldn't recommend driving.
Indeed, public transport in Prague is excellent.
hi. where is the CodeFest location and the timetable for it please? thank you.
Thanks, we'd like to write up and publish at some point but just haven't prioritized it. Hopefully can be a slightly bigger paper with the work put into it.
I have the same problem.. but then writing bigger papers take more planning and effort. JOSS papers can be almost like abstracts, but hey, you get a old-school DOI with new-school double-open peer review and open source software. Here's one I reviewed about ReproZip: https://doi.org/10.21105/joss.00107
so not much problem of double-publishing as a 'classic' journal paper would be significantly different
there's a JOSS talk at BOSC :) by @pjotrp
Does anybody know how it is with parking around the brmlab for codefest?
