Berlin in August, who's participating?

JF
Josh Fairhead Public Seen by 227

Who is headed to Schelling point Berlin? It would be good to get some data in that regard so we can figure out how to swarm efficiently. Who's about, who's already got accommodation, who's looking for accommodation, who's presenting/mentoring/demoing/volunteering, which events are you attending?

Varied dates:
MetaCartel are doing a demo day on 19th August
Web3 Summit 19th-21st August
Berlin Blockchain week starts the 20th-28th August
Daofest 20th August
Dappcon talks 21st-22nd August
Token Engineering Global Gathering 23rd August
ETH Berlin 23rd-25th August sign up: https://ethberlinzwei.com/
ETHGlobal Berlin 7th-9th September

Michael Roberts Wed 12 Jun 2019

I'm not attending any of these events likely although the TEGG event sounds awesome!

K

Kay Wed 12 Jun 2019

So far I plan to be at ETH Berlin - will likely be there for full Berlin Blockchain Week!

W

wslyvh Fri 14 Jun 2019

I'll be there. At least for ETH Berlin, but will likely check-out some of the other events

JF

Josh Fairhead Fri 14 Jun 2019

Cool, just putting out the feelers to gather intel on whos about at the moment which will possibly lead on to AirBnB bookings and event discussions. Thanks for the responses so far guys :)

MP

Marko Prljic Fri 14 Jun 2019

Thanks for the post @joshafairhead :raised_hands:

I'm in Berlin from 19th - 26th of August, hitting first the Web3Summit and then moving to ETH Berlin Zwei and DappCon.
I'm also a mentor at ETH Berlin, didn't get more instructions so can't say what the schedule will look like.
Definitely would love to be at Meta Cartel demo day as well.
@geleeroyale wanted to hack something that week for the Commons Stack, so looking to be there as well.

Housing .... yes, would be great if we can book something together to stay on budget. Last time at Aracon it was a really good house, something similar but closer to the venue would be great.

Who's in for the shared house?
Also, if you know other people are coming and would be interested please invite them here to Loomio.
I could also create a Telegram group if that's more convenient.

Thanks!

Andreas Tue 25 Jun 2019

I’m there but not sure what I do! Coming with my friend Evan!

philh Wed 26 Jun 2019

Hi there, I'll be there for Web3, Dappcon, possibly TEGG (waiting list). Would be happy to share accommodation, nothing booked yet :)

MP

Marko Prljic Wed 26 Jun 2019

Awesome 👍 me too!

JF

Josh Fairhead Thu 27 Jun 2019

Me 3 ;)

I'm ridiculously last min dot com, so if anyone has suggestions please feel welcome to make them! Good to see whats possible, I'm very curious if theres such thing as group couch surfing as I miss that activity! AirBnB is fine but it would be cool to find something mad special and uniquely creative as well :D

MP

Marko Prljic Thu 27 Jun 2019

Like that thing we had on Aracon? Or wilder? :)

JF

Josh Fairhead Thu 27 Jun 2019

Closer to Odyssey boat but less costly. Something lean like a community area where we just bring some beds and blankets, but I wouldn't say no to a tree house or something much weirder. My vibe is that it should be an adventure and discovery process :D

MP

Marko Prljic Thu 27 Jun 2019

LOL, fair, fair, I love adventures but ... for this occasion, I'd rather have something with more commodity, and a bit more secure :)

MP

Marko Prljic Sat 29 Jun 2019

Hi everyone!
Trying to count people who'll join that shared place, I'd look up for some nice spots but I do need to know the number of beds.

Another point is location. Do we want to be closer to dappcon? I think we do.
That means whoever is going to Web3 Summit (like myself) first two days will be more commute because Funkhaus is on the opposite side.

@joshafairhead dappcon as marked on the map is near that place we were last time for Aracon. Do you think should take that option as well? https://cl.ly/c9242e80de14

Please, everyone in this group leave your feedback, suggestions, comments, ideas etc. I'd start looking for some places (and you can do that too!) and send proposals.

Thanks!

EDIT: We also have Goerli park where Hackathon takes place at the end of the week. Maybe to find something in the middle of all?

BG

Belma Gutlic Fri 5 Jul 2019

Thanks @markoprljic for the ideas. Me and my colleague will be there from 20. to 27. August. We'll be mostly on Dappcon and Hackathon but I don't think we really care much about the location :) So, that's us + Marko = 3 beds for now! Anyone else can confirm now? I guess we should wrap this up.

P

philh Fri 5 Jul 2019

I'll be there from 18 to 24, happy to share a place :)

JF

Josh Fairhead Sun 7 Jul 2019

Welcome!

Wrap this up already? I feel that would be a bit soon to be honest (as decisions should be postponed until they need to be made) but perhaps we should set a deadline to book by. I'd suggest that we should perhaps deadline for the end of July (leaving 20 days~ to book before requiring the resource), but then again I'm uncertain of the supply/demand economics around Berlin for that period! Thoughts?

MP

Marko Prljic Sun 7 Jul 2019

Yes, let's set a deadline. End July sounds good, I wouldn't go beyond that.

Any recommendations for the house?

JF

Josh Fairhead Mon 8 Jul 2019

Have you got a place to stay yet, and if not would you like to be get one collectively (should we count you while looking for a place)? If so what dates will you be around over (please state explicitly if you can)?

Josh Fairhead Mon 8 Jul 2019

So preliminary speaking it looks like we have potential for 9 people who have expressed interest on this thread - I've replied above to check in but if you guys could state your dates and clarify your participation it would be appreciated:
@markoprljic
@belmagutlic
@belmagutlic's college
@geleeroyale
@philh2
@andreaspapazidis
@andreaspapazidis's friend Evan
@wslyvh

If you wish to invite anyone else, now would be the time to check in with them :)

W

wslyvh Tue 9 Jul 2019

Yes, I have. I'll be there from 22-26th. Hope to catch you guys there!

MP

Marko Prljic Thu 11 Jul 2019

@joshafairhead would you like to take the lead on finding the places for stay? Kreuzberg seems best district to be close to all events. I've been in the metacartel tele group recently and they already booked a place Lili recommended. There are other cools spots for say €30/night each.
I'm totally overbooked at work, I'd appreciate someone take the lead, please.

Thanks!

JF

Josh Fairhead Sat 13 Jul 2019

Also good shout asking about dates @belmagutlic :)

MP

Marko Prljic Sat 13 Jul 2019

Seems like we're looking to book a place from 18. to 28. August.
Some folks stay shorter, some longer, some are in between, so I guess when we find a place we split the cost based on the number of days per person. What are your thoughts about this.

@joshafairhead I think we can start looking for a place for 10-12 people, there are spots flexible enough to cover that even if someone drops or comes aboard in the meantime.
And thanks for taking on the search bro. It doesn't have to be a one person effort, I encourage everyone to post their find here. Look out for Kreuzberg area, that's half way to Dappcon and Gorli.

JF

Josh Fairhead Sat 13 Jul 2019

Personally im good with that but I'll wait for others to chime in as it may be a limiting factor.

W

wslyvh Mon 15 Jul 2019

I'll be in Berlin, but I have accommodation arranged already. You can remove me from the joint housing list. Thanks!

K

Kay Mon 15 Jul 2019

I'll be traveling alone (without family), so would love to join you guys in a shared space! Dates for me correspond with the whole blockchain week, Berlin

P

philh Tue 16 Jul 2019

If occupation is spread over a long period with a small number of people at the beginning and at the end, it can turn expensive. For instance if i'm the only one on the 18th and if we're only 2 on the 19th, I'd rather rent a private room somewhere for those 2 days.

BG

Belma Gutlic Tue 16 Jul 2019

That's true, I did the math too and I guess everyone is here to get a cheaper and more fun place. However, not everyone has confirmed the dates. If any of you can ping the guys that didn't confirm yet, would be great.

MP

Marko Prljic Tue 16 Jul 2019

We can split the costs regardless of dates, equal for all.

P

philh Thu 18 Jul 2019

Sorry guys, I have to do another arrangement because of personal constraints (I might not travel alone after all). Still I hope to see you there! :raised_hands:

MP

Marko Prljic Sat 20 Jul 2019

@geleeroyale @joshafairhead @maximesuard When do you guys arrive and leave?
I have no problem to share place and split the cost even if you stay a day or two more than me. Please let me know.
My dates 19.-26. August

JF

Josh Fairhead Sat 20 Jul 2019

I'm there the whole week also. Let's say 19-26 also. Flexi and will look at a computer to deal with things soon!

Dan Shields Wed 24 Jul 2019

Hey guys - I am looking to find a place between 8/16 and 8/28, with flexability on the end date down to 8/26 earliest departure.

I am also very open to options to link together couch surfing opportunities, and plan on staying fulltime at the venue for ethberlin, so will not need a bed over that time.

MS

Maxime Suard Fri 26 Jul 2019

Hi all, please count me out, I have some conflicting plans coming up and might not come to berlin after all :(

BG

Belma Gutlic Sun 28 Jul 2019

Hey guys,
sorry to hear that your plans changed, hope to see you there. I found some time to sum up the current status, hoping that we can still pull this off :) So, by now, we have:

@markoprljic - from 19. to 26.
@belmagutlic - from 20. to 27.
@belmagutlic's college - from 20. to 27.
@geleeroyale - from 19. to 26.
@JoshAFairhead - from 19. to 26.
@danshields - from 16. to 28. (possible 8/26 earliest departure).
@whenlua - from 18./19. to 26./27.

@andreaspapazidis I am not counting you in as I don't see that you have confirmed your dates before so let us know if you have changed your mind!

MP

Marko Prljic Sun 28 Jul 2019

Guys I just bumped into this brand new listing, looks unreal but true. Very cheap and plenty of space. Please check soonest and let me know what you think.

I say we book that! Since there is 7 of us now, I think we can find 1 more person easily (if we need it). Much better than the places that I've found in the cheaper range.

Hi everyone, I'm in Berlin for half a week from 18/19 till 21-22, would be great to share a place, especially if it would fit with someone coming for the second part of the week. I see tho the Airbnb listing link is gone :cry: , guess maybe it was indeed too good to be true.

Maija Tue 30 Jul 2019

Hi Marko thank you for your finds :)
The first place looks nice - however I see it is booked for the weekend. But maybe we can keep an eye on it if it frees up again?

The second place should be treated with caution, it's the same "disappearing" property host. I have also seen several other "new" listings from them with the same review profiles come and go the past couple of days. Too many red flags for my liking.

Here are a couple of other options:
Budget & a bit of a distance:
https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/16009783
Budget & a bit of a jungle
https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/18669477
Good loacation

Marko Prljic Tue 30 Jul 2019

Hi Maija.

First place I posted earlier, it shows open dates for that week, we're booking 19-27 Aug I think https://cl.ly/f5cdd2ad7268

Second place is not from the host (I think her name was Georgia or something) I posted the first time, the one that disappeared.
Have you been monitoring this one lately so you know it is the same case of disappearing?

Appreciate taking the time to look further. Yes, the ones you posted are very dislocated from what we want.
I'm looking mainly around Kreuzberg area or near that. Berlin is huge, we don't want to commute for hours :D

Hey everyone, as it stands now it seems unlikely we'll (Pepijn / Jeroen and I) be able to join you in Berlin. July has brought us 2 potential customers who want us to build DLT solutions and we hardly have the resources to build our own concept at the moment... "
