In a followup to a story we reported
earlier, we've received word that organizers of this summer's What the Hack conference have
successfully completed negotiations with the municipality of Boxtel
and received a permit for the event.
As we reported earlier, the municipality had originally planned to
deny granting the needed permit, which would have prevented the
conference from occurring. However, further communication with
conference organizers and potential attendees from around the world
cleared up the misunderstanding, and so the permit was granted. The event will take place as scheduled: July 28 through 31, in
Liempde, near Den Bosch, the Netherlands.
As many airlines offer discount fares to those who purchase tickets 30
days in advance, now might be a good time to reserve if you're
thinking of going to the conference. Also, pre-registration for
the conference (at a 10 Euro discount) ends July 1st.
In related news, organizers of the Hacktrain travelling from
points throughout Germany to What the Hack have announced the route and
fares. Organizers of the conference put it this way: "Short of someone
landing a spaceship on the main field, this has to be the winner in
the 'coolest way to get to What The Hack' contest."
