Event Details

UPDATE: The event is fully booked out!

The Smart Home Day is co-located with EclipseCon Europe in Ludwigsburg. Taking place on the Sunday before EclipseCon Europe starts allows people to easily attend both events without additional travelling.

The Smart Home Day focuses specifically on Eclipse SmartHome based solutions such as openHAB and QIVICON and is an awesome opportunity for the community to meet and exchange.

While the afternoon session has interesting talks from solution providers, core project committers and from other community members, we also cater for extensive breaks for networking, checking out live demos and of course for excellent food.

For everyone who does not have to leave at 5pm, we will have an informal gathering in the evening at a nearby pub, where topics can be further discussed in depth! For our planning, please register separately for the evening, so that we know for how many people we need to reserve space.

Special thanks to our sponsor Deutsche Telekom AG, who makes this event possible.
