Topic: Zope 4, Plone on Python 3 + Zope 4, Plone Core Dev

 Plone is still on Python 2 and do not use the latest zope toolkit packages. Zope2 is still on Python 2. Python to is scheduled for end of life at 2020. There is a Zope4 project which aims to run on Python 3. Also our current ZODB/ZEO is outdated.

The sprints goal is to get the key-people together to discuss and work on the future of Zope4 and push Plone and the software stack below from the past to the present and future of Python 3.

Organized Events

We will visit the Brenner base tunnel construction site: far below the Brenner Pass, the longest underground railway connection in the world is being built. We meet at Visitor Center in Steinach 10:00am. We meet prior in Innsbruck and take a Postbus or S-Bahn (details follow).

We also plan a dinner and other evening events:

                            Friday Night -  Dinner at the Seegrube -   http://www.nordkette.com

                            Saturday Night - Pub Crawl - Innsbruck



There are lots of hotels and some hostels in Innsbruck. Also apartments are offered i.e. by AirBnB and others.

Nearby (10-15 minutes by feet or few stops by bus) and with positive feedback from last years is the Alphotel Innsbruck.

Our long term partner Hotel is the Hotel Zillertal (10-15 Minutes by bus). 


Our office and the sprint location is at the eastend of Innsbruck at the building called "Soho 2.0". Our office and the location is on the top of the building (penthouse) at 4th floor. Follow the signs we provide inside the building.

  • Moving around in Innsbruck
    Innsbruck is unfortunately rare of parking place and the parking garages are expensive.
    So the best way is to take the public transport or go by feet. Price for the public transport at IVB website. You can get a one way ticket in every  tram/bus. 5-way tickets are available at the ticket machines. Do not forget to stamp the tickets in the tram/bus, otherwise they are not valid. IVB has also an App with live-schedule and mobile tickets available.

    In front of the office building buses F, R and T (direction "Rumer Hof") are stopping.

    In most of the buses and all tram lines free Wifi is available (1h+500MB per day).

  • Arrival by train

    Going by train is not only comfortable, eco-friendly and stress-free – quite often it is also the most pocket-friendly way of travelling. Lean back and get into the holiday spirit as soon as you leave home. International train connections to all European capital cities click here for timetables

  • Arrival by plane

    Innsbruck has its own Airport (timetable) with connections to some European cities. The next international airport is Munich - from there take the train (~2 ½h) or an special airport taxi (Four Seasons) or a slow, but cheap bus.

    At Innsbruck airport you'll find taxis to take you to your accommodation. If you prefer public transport bus "F" takes you to the centre within minutes: from 5.59 am until 10.59 pm daily the bus takes you within 17 minutes to the main station Innsbruck past the old town and Maria-Theresien-Straße (main street) and also to our office at the „Grabenweg“ bus stop.

  • Arrival by car

    Right in the heart of Europe, Innsbruck is very conveniently located. A well-developed road network connects the Tyrolean capital to the world.

    A 12 Autobahn network (East and West) easily accessible from all directions (toll sticker - compulsory „Vignette“ - required on all motorways!). Extra toll fees are also charged on the A 13 Autobahn starting at Innsbruck South entrance (from Italy, Brenner) and coming from the west through the Arlberg tunnel. Please consider the "Rettungsgasse" (rescue lane) on the motorways in Austria.

    You can see the office building from the highway, when you come from the direction munich on the right side. It's close to the highway exit „Innsbruck Ost“. After you exit you have to take the very first exit on the right side (be careful). In the first circle you take the second exit, the second circle take the first exit, then after ~200m you arrived.

    There is a parking garage at SOHO 2.0. It costs 5 € a day. This is very cheap for Innsbruck. But maybe you can get a parking lot for free in front of the building or in the streets near by (if you are here before 9 o'clock or at weekends chances are good).


Innsbruck with Nordkette and Seegrube at dawnFood, Social and Sport in Innsbruck

Social Events and Food

You can find traditional and modern Austrian dishes as well as international restaurants. Innsbruck has a lot of restaurants but it is famous for its tourist traps. So I will choose some restaurants and make reservations (because we are a couple of people). I hope it is in your opinion. On Friday evening we will be again at the Seegrube.

If you need more party: The university of Innsbruck is the largest university of west Austria. Therefore you find in Innsbruck a lot of bar's and pubs. Very famous is the party area „die Bögen“(archs, viaduct bars), under the railway.

Winter Sports

Three times host to the Winter Olympics, our region boasts nine ski areas for alpine skiing, snowboarding and cross-country skiing. Our winter sports menu also includes tobogganing, ice skating, alpine-style curling and even a ride in an Olympic bobsleigh. The free ski bus is convenient and environmentally friendly. Look at the interactive skimap http://www.innsbruck.info/skimap

We help you to organize your sports trip too, just contact us: ski-pass, rental, ....

Probably you may want to stay some extra days with your friends/ family?
