One of the most active Ada societies is hosting its annual spring event at May 17th. 2009. The event is open for both members and non-members, though the latter group must pay 10 Euros for food and beverages.
Here’s a short quote from Dirk Craeynest’s comp.lang.ada post:
Last year, the Ada-Belgium Board decided to propose a more interactive
and social format than our traditional evening events based on a
General Assembly followed by a technical presentation. As the new
format was appreciated by all those present, this year’s event once
more starts at noon, runs until 7pm, and includes a barbecue, a key
signing party, the 16th General Assembly of the organization, and a
workshop on packaging Ada software for Debian hosted by Ludovic Brenta,
principal maintainer of Ada in Debian.
This is the schedule for the event:
- 12:00 welcome and getting started (setting up computers and preparing food – please be there!)
- 13:00 barbecue
- 14:00 Ada-Belgium General Assembly
- 14:45 key signing party
- 15:00 workshop on creating Debian packages of Ada software
- 19:00 end
Personally, I wish I could be there, but that specific day is already booked I’m afraid. Perhaps next year! I hope the event runs smoothly and that you all have a really great day.
