We are pleased to have finally arranged details of the attendees hotel. As with YAPC::Europe in 2006, we will be staying at The Jury's Inn. This is just a short walk from the QA Hackathon venue, The City Inn, and within easy reach of New Street station.
For those attendees who have already registered their interest on the website, we have already contacted and reserved rooms on their behalf. If you have not receieved an email from us, please get in touch as soon as possible, and we will arrange to extend the room reservations.
For those who have been waiting to hear of our hotel plans before considering whether to attend the QA Hackathon, please contact us and we will provide details of costs for you, and reserve rooms once you confirm your attendance.
We currently have 19 confirmed attendees, and are endeavouring to aquire sponsorship for at least one other international attendee. We still have room for others, so if you have an interest in any of the QA projects and feel you can help in any way, please add yourself to the Attendees page on the wiki.
We are currently putting together a pictorial directions guide, which will be available online for anyone unfamiliar with Birmingham City Centre, to help you locate where to go, both from the airport arrivals and New Street station.
