Back in 2012, I started the idea of having a regular, bi-weekly meeting of people interested in mobile communications technology, not only strictly related to the Osmocom projects and software. This was initially called the Osmocom User Group Berlin. The meetings were held twice per month in the rooms of the Chaos Computer Club Berlin.
There are plenty of people that were or still are involved with Osmocom one way or another in Berlin. Think of zecke, alphaone, 2b-as, kevin, nion, max, prom, dexter, myself - just to name a few.
Over the years, I got "too busy" and was no longer able to attend regularly. Some people kept it alive (thanks to dexter!), but eventually they were discontinued in 2013.
I'm happy that I had the idea of re-starting the meeting. It's good to meet old friends and new people alike. Both times there actually were some new faces around, most of which even had a classic professional telecom background.
In order to emphasize the focus is strictly not on Osmocom alone ( particularly not about its users only), I decided to rename the event to the Osmocom Meeting Berlin.
If you're in Berlin and are interested in mobile communications technology on the protocol and radio side of things, feel free to join us next Wednesday.
