Some practical things:

1. I will be there on Friday the whole day, on Thursday I will have to
work and I will come to open the doors of HSBXL early in the morning
(like 8am), and come back in the afternoon. There are 4 doors/gates to
pass, so I would need someone to be there with me to take the keys. I
will try to go there the day before, and warm up the place;
2. On the friday evening at 6PM, there is a Kubernetes meetup with 40
people, so I will need the help of you guys to move stuff around
(tables, seats, etc...), as I broke my back last year and I cannot
lift heavy things;

See you next week!

"In July 2005, after several failed attempts to legalise software
patents in Europe, the patent establishment changed its strategy.
Instead of explicitly seeking to sanction the patentability of
software, they are now seeking to create a central European patent
court, which would establish and enforce patentability rules in their
favor, without any possibility of correction by competing courts or
democratically elected legislators."
