Very interesting speeches, unfortunately way too high-level for my noob programming skills.
@yorik: I noticed Björn Balazs presentation
Is it the same balazs posting for example here
If yes, already two FreeCADers there ...
@keithsloan: since I live in Germany i checked AMEROPA-Homepage (Travel Agency linked with German Railway) and
(they offer packages including stay and sightseeing).
Often they mentioned Best Western County House
as a good hotel.
Rates start with 79 Euros per stay.
You decide if that is cheap ...
