We also just put up a blogpost with a preliminary agenda:

Looking forward to see everyone in a couple of months :slight_smile:


Are you planning to stream the sessions online?


Yes, whenever possible a live stream will be available.


Deadline is approaching. Last days to fill in the application.


Is there a hotel people can recommend staying at?

Another option is to stay directly at the City centre and take the bus to the Institute which would take roughly ten minutes.

Good hotels in the City Centre would be:

There might be special offers for people visiting our campus according to this:

That sounds nice. Would be fun to stay at the same hotel if we are many coming from abroad.

We’re really happy to announce a Geo visualization track forMakieCon23 :slight_smile: Looking forward to have this area much more polished in Makie going forward!


See the final agenda. Note, that although we have several talks, the second most important part of the event is the exchange of ideas between users and developers, and of course among developers as well. Note the Hackathons’s slots :smile:
