The LibreOffice Ankara HackFest 2016 will take place on the weekend of April, 30th to May, 1st 2016, in Ankara (more details on location TBD).

About the location

Panoramic view of Ankara at night.

Ankara is the capital of the Turkey. The second largest city of Turkey behind Istanbul is easy to reach with international air travel. Due to its elevation and inland location, Ankara has cold, snowy winters and hot, dry summers. Rainfall occurs mostly during the spring and autumn. Experienced and new LibreOffice developers will meet at Hackfest Ankara, 2016. Location of hackfest will be announced very soon from here.

Travel Bursaries

The Document Foundation may be able to refund tickets to and from the Ankara Hackfest, after prior approval by the organizers, under the following conditions:

  • transportation-only, please sign-up for couch surfing if you need free accommodation
  • volunteer-first - people affiliated with a company involved in LibreOffice work will come last
  • first-come-first-served - participants will get reimbursed in order of their sign-up on the wiki attendance list, until budget runs out.
  • ask the organizers as soon as possible (ideally right before booking) if budget is still available. Be aware of the fact that tax law requires us to collect original receipts, so please keep them (or hand them in right there in Ankara)

Please be economic and pick cheap travel - that said, flights to Ankara might still be available at a reasonable price.
