The Randa Meetings are developers sprints taking place in Randa, a small village in the swiss alp. Randa Meetings originated from the KDE Community but are also open for contributors of other free and open source projects like GNOME.

The first Randa Meetings took place 2009 and were organized by Mario Fux. In 2012 we saw the foundation of the swiss association “Verein Randa Meetings” which is now responsible for the organization of the developer sprints in Randa.

    This coming Wednesday the 13th August 2014 you organise an ‘open door’ for the general public. Is the meeting building accessible by wheelchair? TKS for reply. JP

      Dear Jean-Pierre, unfortunately the house is not very (rather not at all) accesible by wheelchair. Please contact Mario Fux for further information and possible assistance.
