About the location

Istanbul, historically known as Constantinople and Byzantium, is the most populous city in Turkey and the country's economic, cultural, and historic center. Istanbul is a transcontinental city in Eurasia, straddling the Bosphorus strait (which separates Europe and Asia) between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea. Its commercial and historical center lies on the European side and about a third of its population lives on the Asian side.

It was a small and cozy event. The number of attendees was lower than the previous years, but we had more time for each visitor as a plus. It was also a good opportunity to break the ice between different segments of the Turkish Free Software community.
