The Freeciv Users and Developers European ConferenceEdit

On August 2 and 3, 2002, a couple of Freeciv enthusiasts met in Amsterdam. Here are some post-event notes.

What happened?Edit

Including but not limited to:

the warmup period
where Freecivers crawled under tables to connect the cables, set everything up, discovered it didn't work, and ran around trying to fix things
the introduction round
where Freecivers introduced themselves, explained their involvement with Freeciv, and stirred up discussions about the game, development, future goals and priorities, etc.
the presentations
where Freecivers introduced and demonstrated some current developments:
  • Ingo presented his Teamciv
  • Raimar presented his management agents
  • Thomas S. presented Iuz's war client
and the rest of us were suitably impressed
the cooldown period
where Freecivers went out for a minimum of food and sleep
the afterglow period
where Freecivers rejoined for a boat tour, a museum visit, food, drink, and talk


These people were a great help:
