CentOS Dojo Barcelona, Spain, Wednesday 29th October 2014

A one day sysadmin centric learning and sharing experience

The CentOS Dojo's are a one day event, organised around the world, that bring together people from the CentOS Communities to talk about systems administration, best practises in linux centric activities and emerging technologies of note. The emphasis is to find local speakers and tutors to come together and talk about things that they care about most, and to share stories from their experiences working with CentOS in various scenarios.

Location

NOTE: we have a new venue! We are now going to be running the Dojo at the UPC - Vertex Building. This facility is larger, and allows us to accommodate a lot more people. The complete address is:

VX (Vertex) Building - UPC
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya
Eusebi Güell Square, 6
08034 Barcelona

/!\ The link has changed as the old one pointed to a different "vertex building" (also in Barcelona)

Local Hotels

For accommodation, there is a very convenient university residence very close to CSUC facilities: http://www.resa.es/eng/Residences/Torre-Girona

There are also many hotels at walking distance (20') and well connected by tram (goes through Diagonal Avenue), metro and bus:

If you prefer a hotel located in the city center, CSUC has an agreement with H10 Universitat Hotel. To benefit from this agreement, please contact Clara Camí and don't forget to include the code "CSUC" when you ask for a reservation. Conditions are as follows: Doble room for an individual use, Breakfast included, Free WiFi, 120 € (VAT included, Tourist Tax not included: this tax will range from 0.50 euros to 2.50 euros per person, per night depending on the category of accommodation you’re staying in). From H10 Universitat hotel, you might need 35 minutes to reach CSUC (door to door).

Please, as a general recommendation, I would suggest you to be careful about hotels located in Raval and Barri Gòtic districts, because these places have the taste and beauty for a walk during the day time, but might turn into an inconvenient place for tourists at night.

If you want to know how many time the public transport takes from one place to another, you can use http://www.tmb.cat/en/home

If you need additional information on hotels or other logistic issues, you can contact to teresa.via@csuc.cat.
