0x20 Hackerspace Ghent

Shared publicly  - 
 
We like to invite you to the FOURTH installment of our annual hackerspace conference called Newline. Now with even less organisation and planning. So come all and have a good time with what as become a yearly small (but extremely cozy) gathering in Ghent.
Most of you know the drill: short accessible talks, food that's warm and not poisonous, cold beer and mate, steaming coffee served by an italian temperamental coffeemaker.
Why would you come? Glad you asked. It is an excellent opportunity to learn cool stuff and meet new people. It's peer-organised, free (as in beer and in speech) and, quite frankly, we'd love you to show up.
This minicon will kick off on Friday the 30th with our infamous pre-party. Followed on sathurday (not too early in the morning) by a day of talks, workshops and unforseen events and general chaos. Sunday is clean-up and chill-out.
We are a community driven event and are still looking for people who want to contribute. There are open spots in our schedule for talks and workshops. These can be about a wide range of topics,technical or other. If you are interested in giving a talk, please add your proposal here or mail us at newline [at] 0x20 [dot] be. If you know someone that you'd like to give a talk, please forward this invitation to them.

NEWLINE 2014 CALL FOR PAPERS.
 Yes!!!! It's that time again, Ze New Line is upon us! Rejoice!
As every year we invite hackers, makers, coders, artists and
all our drinking buddies to this un-conference-like party.

Visitors of the past editions know: It's a small conference,
you come over to be yourself and meet a lot of new (and old)
friends.

Reply to this CFP sign up with a small talk, a demo, a show
and tell. And we will welcome you to our event with great
regards.

Talk rooms are very small and cozy and our visitors don't bite.

It's really not a real conference unless you share a bit of your
interests. Really, the best way to enjoy this event is to give a
talk and share some of the stuff you care about.

What can you talk about? Simple answer: Plenty of things.

There are different tracks:

- I <3 Foo:
{You've got some piece of software/hardware/technology you love, but
you didn't write it, never even submitted a well written bug report.
Yet Foo makes your life easier/more fun/less boring. Come over and
share your experiences with us! Tell us what we're missing.}
- I do Bar:
{You've got some practical skill, in-depth knowledge about Bar, you can
share with your fellow hackers. You're not the talker but more action-
oriented. Cool! Give us some Idea what you want to do, and we'll get
some interested people in a small and cozy room with you. But not too
close}
- I know Baz:
{Awesome, your in-dept knowledge on Baz will enlighten us all, you're
the kind of speaker that can keep a room on the edge of their seat for
an hour and still, keep the questions flowing after the talk}

- I think qux:
{Here are you, with your opinion. You want to give a political, philoso-
phical, ethical statement. You want to pitch an idea and welcome comments.
You're a pastafarian that wants new followers, a politician without voters,
a rebel without a cause/clue. Feel free to join us, we'll dust off our
soapbox for ya.}

We need the following to make this a great event:
- Short accessible talks (20min or less)
- Longer In-depth talks (30min or longer)
- Workshops
- Demo's
- Performances

Excited? So are we!

We just added another 2 comedians to the list. The line-up might be or not be complete! http://www.0x20.be/Comedy_night
 
COMEDY NIGHT @WHITESPACE

OUR LINE-UP OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE COMEDY:

WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

For one night only, the greatest playwright in history comes to Ghent. Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to get up close and personal with the inventor of the English language, famous for his many great works including the screenplay of Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 hit film, Romeo + Juliet. Come hear about the origin of the word ‘bubble’ and witness the premiere of Shakespeare’s latest play.

RICHIE SMALLSMORE

Formerly a billionaire, now a millionaire, infamous business guru Richie Smallsmore is brash, deluded and out to share his wisdom with the world - whether anyone wants it or not.

-------

GARETH ELLIS

Half of British double-act, Ellis & Rose, Gareth is brings his own brand of surreal and frivolous comedy to the land of chocolate and fries.

JORIK MOL

He done comedy for longer than he cares to remember and, although not a nerd, had aspirations of one day becoming one, but after realising at the age of seven that cracking MS-DOS is not the same as hacking the Pentagon, he then focused on becoming a stand-up comedian writer and actor, an ambition that has yet to see fruition. He is also Dutch, for which he apologises (Tiendaagse Veldtocht e.d. ), but despite that, he has started to make a name for himself in the UK, where he will be going the morning after this gig. Jorik likes books, miserable indie-folk and makes a mean vegetarian risotto.
