Planning an Ulti-Evening in Germany


Recommended Posts

Posted · Planning an Ulti-Evening in Germany

[This is a summary, not a literal translation of the German thread found here. Feel free to respond in either thread, I'll try to keep both updated.]


How about a Ulti-evening in Germany? An evening at a FabLab with drinks, food, hacking time and a talk? Maybe even the chance to buy some spare parts? Sounds awesome? That's what I think, too and that's why I'm getting involved to make this happen!

Since I have quite a lot of experience organizing events I talked to Sander who organizes the Dutch Ulti-evenings and it's a go!

BTW: If you are Belgian and want to get involved, talk to Blizz who's helping to organize the Belgian edition.

What we need now is a place to host the event. Ulti-evenings are held at FabLabs and therefore we are looking for a centrally located, easy-to-reach FabLab in Germany that uses Ultimakers. The FabLab would benefit from having people over and we wouldn't have to look for a room with enough power plugs for all the Ultimakers :smile:

Hosting a the event at a FabLab would also take care of a lot of peculiar German problems like GEMA fees, permits, taxes and insurances, basically a lot of red tape... (PM me if you want to hear stories of bureaucratic horror.)

From my research I found three FabLab that might be suitable candidates, in Mannheim, Munich, and Dresden, and Nicolinux just suggested Wiesbaden (near Frankfurt) in the German thread but maybe


know just the right FabLab or are even a member at the most amazing FabLab in Germany?

Ian claimed in the German thread that there are "a lot of American and British guys living in Bavaria who would be interested"- I hope this is true!

Edited to clear up some mangled sentences.

    Update! We're currently deciding whether the talk should be held in English or German.

    If you only speak English and would blike to come to a Ulti-Evening in Germany, show yourself :-) (well, the talk might be held in English anyway but I'd still like to know)
