Relax in Vienna, Austria, with Apache CouchDB

CouchHack 2013, December 13th - 16th Vienna, Austria


What's Up?

CouchHack 2013 is an Apache CouchDB developer-focused relaxing and intimate four-day hack event in Vienna, Austria. We'll be here advancing the state of the world's best replicating database, and we'd love you to contribute too! All skills welcome, from javascripters and documentation, through erlangists and packagers. Enthusiasm is not optional!

Where Its At

On the weekend of 13 to 16 December, we are inviting all CouchDB hackers, and those who want to be one to CouchHack Vienna. Or even those who just want to learn a little about CouchDB. Heck, you can come if you would like to chill out with passionate tech people.

Vienna is located in Central Europe, and has been a social, political, and cultural hub long before North Americans started building railways. So you might even want to come by a couple of days early and check it out!

Previous CouchHacks have been run in Europe and North America in:

Gimme the Details

We start at 10am, at sektor5 A larger map is here.

The closest Public transport stops are at:

Metro: U4 Pilgramgasse
Bus:14A Arbeitergasse Bus: 59A

A very convenient option is to go via tram or train to Matzleinsdorfer Platz and then walk straight "downhill" towards Siebenbrünnnengasse.

For finding how to get from A to B, use the excellent smartphone app "AnachB" which is German for A to B. It's really good, and has an android and ios version. They have a webpage which isn't as nice,

But far the best transport is CityBike with a drop-off point just 2 minutes away in Siebenbrünnen Platz.

Planning & Updates will be on Lanryd.

How do I get to Vienna, or get around in Vienna?

Vienna has awesome public transport, and a free** city bike system. Consider either getting day passes for the Metro (all buses, trains, underground and trams) or using the excellent bike network.
