๐Ÿ˜๏ธ Accommodation

Once you are approved participant for the sprint, we'll get everyone to a shared communication room to help organize accomodation.

Note that the accomodation is not covered by the sprint budget.

If you are planning to come with your family and/or stay longer, Nejc Zupan has written a remote worker's guide to Lanzarote.

See Accomodations for a list of suggestions.

๐Ÿฒ Food

We'll organize catering (breakfast and lunch) during the sprint, which is paid by the sponsors.

There are a ton of options for dinners in nearby restaurants.

๐Ÿ”ฅ Registration


๐Ÿงต Topics

To be determined once registration closes based on attendees interest.

๐Ÿ›ฌ How to get here

The best way to travel is via a plane to Lanzarote airport.

It's also possible to fly to other island airports and then take a short flight. Fuertaventura is closest being 30min away with a ferry.

From the Lanzarote airport you can take a taxi to the venue, they have a flat rate and it should be around 20-25 EUR.

Renting a car is usually quite cheap, around 100-150 eur for the week.
