Not yet :)

You will definitely have 8 hours to schedule.

That is what we haven't decided upon yet.

There are three options here:
1) devrooms open at 11:00 and end at 19:00
2) devrooms open at 10:30 and end at 18:30
3) devrooms open at 10:00 and end at 18:00

I'm personally rather fond of option 3 because, essentially, we
have to be able to cope with the massive amount of visitors and
give them space and seats to go to.
On the other hand, option 3 gives us the possibility of doing
our welcome talk before anything else starts, give people have
half an hour to go to their respective devrooms and prepare.

We're just going to have to weigh the pros and cons, but you
will definitely have 8 schedulable hours on Saturday :)

For Sundays, it's business as usual, open at 09:00, close at

Hope this helps, and I'll send out an email to all the devroom
coordinators once we've decided on the above.
