We are pleased to announce that this year we have partnered with Fastweb and Devaus Oy to provide a top-notch Internet & Intranet wi-fi experience.
Wifi and Internet
We know how much wifi and Internet connection is important at a technical conference. Really, we do understand it. This is why we have started working very early to plan the wifi service for EuroPython 2012, after last year's problems.
To make sure that everything will go smooth, we have partnered with two companies that we are truly confident will provide an egregious service:
Devaus has published an initial page with some information on the EuroPython network. We will obviously make more information available later on.
House your server/VM in our Intranet
We are also pleased to announce that, for the first time, we will be running an Intranet at EuroPython, to let sponsors, startups, open-source projects and speakers showcase their products directly within our network.
If you want to run a website, application or whatever else you want, we have two different free offers for you:
If you want to be part of the EuroPython intranet, just [hidden email] and we will find together the best solution for your project.
Why wifi didn't work well last year
Some people are still curious on why we had problems last year with the wifi. Obviously there was no single problem, but there were a few concurrent causes:
Lesson learnt, though: for EuroPython 2012, we have allocated a larger part of the budget for connectivity, and at the same time we worked hard to bring a much fatter pipe at an affordable price. Meanwhile, regulations in Italy changed and we will not be forced anymore to authenticate users: this means that we will run a standard WPA2 network with no captive portal. And since we have full trust in Devaus' proven expertise with technical conferences, we are now really looking forward to providing a really outstanding Internet experience at EuroPython. Get a ticket and see it yourself!
