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.
- 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.
Feel free to use Flameeyes as local point of contact before, during and after the event.
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
|60 Mespil Rd|
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.
