German Localization Unconference 2016
The second edition of the German Localization Unconference took place on
  • June 23 and 24, 2016
  • in Heidelberg 
    • Day 1: Dezernat16, walking distance from Heidelberg train station. 
    • Day 2: SAP Offices in St. Leon-Rot (Building 3), 30min by public transport or 20min by car from Heidelberg train station.
Day 1 had a different format, with not only Translatathon and Hackathon tracks, but for the first time also an Open Source Unconference track.

The Translatathon and the Hackathon provided again coders and linguists with an opportunity to demonstrate their skills and to discover new ones all while making meaningful contributions to the pro-bono projects KamusiRosetta Foundation and Translators without Borders.

The Open Source Unconference was for anyone, from companies or other types of organizations and projects, who is interested in working together on community open source software, and in sharing ideas on cooperation and needs around open source software projects in the localization industry.

Day 2 was the localization unconference proper, with its purely participant-driven agenda format.
