DTL Programmers Meeting

From dtls
Jump to: navigation, search

DTL organizes a gathering of programmers active in life science research every two months with as primary goal to encourage collaboration and communication. Any interested people can join in: at the moment still freely, in the future we may restrict entrance to employees of DTL member institutes. To make sure we have enough lunch we ask that all names are signed beforehand on a list of attendees. Announcements and agenda discussions are posted on DTL's Programming-Interest mailing list. Please make sure to be a member of that list!

The meetings are organized at the fantastic facilities of SURF in Utrecht

This venue is less than 5 minutes walking distance from the central railway station in Utrecht, direction of Hoog Catharijne. Please come by public transport, with the reconstruction of the city center in Utrecht parking is a mess.
