What is VideoLAN Dev Days 2014?

The Multimedia Conference that frees the cone in you!

This is a technical un-conference, please bring laptops, cords, RJ45 cables and a good mood with you.

Nota bene

  • If you expect VideoLAN to refund your travel, please bring a printed copy of your tickets including total cost.
    • If you are not already in our reimbursement database, please bring a printed IBAN statement too.

Practical information


The meeting is held in Dublin, Ireland.

Feel free to use Flameeyes as local point of contact before, during and after the event.

Emergency situation

In case of emergency, call the European emergency number 112. The UK number 999 also works.


Most venues will accept credit and debit cards as long as they are Chip & PIN; American swipe cards can be slightly more tricky but not exceedingly. American Express is barely accepted.


For sponsored participants, there are two different hotels this year. Check your mail to know which one applies to you.

Sandymount Hotel Mespil Hotel
Herbert Rd, Lansdowne Rd
Dublin 4
60 Mespil Rd
Dublin 4
Directions Directions


Both hotels can be reached from the airport using the Aircoach bus service at 8€/one way, 14€/return. For the full list of bus services, bus/coach check the airport site.

Regular bus lines like 16 every 20min for only 2.20 euro

Taxi from the airport is estimated at 30-40€ one way. Tipping (10-20%) is optional but appreciated. If the driver offers to take the tunnel, note that it involves a 3€ surcharge.

We recommend against renting a car as parking in the city can be challenging (and also to many people, driving on the left side of the road).

NOTE: VideoLAN does not refund taxi expenses nor car rentals.

Main venue

Google Docks, in Barrow Street.


Power supply

The electrical sockets are "British" IEC type G with three prongs a.k.a. BS 1363.

The electrical system is 220V / 50Hz. If you come from the Americas, please make sure your devices are compatible beforehand.

Hotel bathrooms are often an exception, providing 110/220V split sockets, accepting US and Europlug connectors (not grounded). They are marked as "shavers only".


At the venue, the GoogleGuest open WiFi is available at all times.

Most hotels and coffee shops will have available WiFi, but some might require registration.

The airport has a free WiFi network with captive portals.

SIM cards can be freely bought with nothing more than an ID and a card/money.


Dublin forecast for September 19th is 17°C high and 13°C low with 30% risk of rain and a gentle breeze.
