At Brooklyn College CUNY and the NYLXS Education Center at Kings Games
    The 3rd GNOME Developer's Summit will be held on November 22nd, 23rd and 24th at the NYLXS Education Center at Kings Games, and Brooklyn College in New York City. The NY GNOME Summit will be an intensive working laboratory during which members of the GNOME project will get together to discuss development issues, demonstrate their work, and generally continue the upward trend in the project's momentum. The goal for this set of meetings is to accelerate the development and planning work that will lead to GNOME 2.6.

    The intent of the Summit is to be a get-together and a hackfest, not a formal planning event. If you cannot attend, this does not mean that you are left out of the GNOME 2.6 planning process. That said, we would ideally like as many of the key GNOME developers to attend as is possible.

    The registration has just started and make sure that you register early so as to win our cool swag (GNOME T-shirts, badges and other accessories).

    We have the maximum limit of 200 attendees, so register now to ensure that you can attend it. Registration will be closed when we hit our maximum cap. Also see the Summit WIKI out up by members of the GNOME Foundation.
