I have some updates on the rust-vmm meetup.

Agenda and schedule:

We will not have a fixed schedule, the plan is to have open discussions similar to what happened at our first meetup. The idea would be to go over the agenda and decide together the order in which we discuss the items. I'll create a slack channel in rust-vmm and announce the topics before we start the discussion. There are people in our office that are interested in some discussions, but won't be attending the full event.

If you have any topics that you'd like to be discussed, please add them to the agenda [1]. If you would like to join certain discussions over video call, please add a note in the agenda with a tentative time when you can attend it and we will try to accommodate that as well.

On Monday we will meet at 10 AM in the office (exact location in the previous email). From 10-10:30 we can grab coffees, meet and greet, to give all people time to arrive (and me to wake up).

Access to the building

The building has a reception at the ground floor. You will have to ask them to open the door for you when you arrive. Telling them you are going to Amazon, 11th floor should be enough. If you have problems getting in, ping me on Slack/email.

When you first arrive to the office you will receive two badges: one white badge for access to the building and an Amazon visitor badge.

Social Events

We will have an organized dinner on Tuesday. Location TBD (but it's going to be something with Romanian food yam yam).

See y'all on Monday woop woop!

Hey everyone,

As we are getting closer and closer to the Bucharest rust-vmm meetup, we would like to get a better idea regarding the number of participants.

Please complete the registration form (https://forms.gle/BnrYyYFMaWgWVJwc7) by 4th October. If you have any other special requirements, please send me an email.


- 21-23 October 2019

- https://etherpad.net/p/rust-vmm_Bucharest_Meetup_-_Topics

- The meet-up takes place in the Amazon Development Center.
- 4-6 Dimitrie Pompeiu Street, Globalworth Campus, Building A, 11th Floor, Bucharest, District 2, Romania

- 2 mins walking from subway station Pipera

Entering the country:
Please let me know if you need a VISA.

>From OTP Airport to Bucharest:
1. Uber or Taxify - this is the easiest and less stressful way to get in town;  exit the arrivals area of the airport terminal and cross the drive-through pickup lanes. Don't be alarmed when the Uber driver gets out of the car just after picking you up -- they're paying the fee to exit the parking lot. A trip from the airport to the city center costs around 30-50 RON (6-10 euros).
2. Bus - Bus 783 is going from OTP to Piata Unirii; some more information here: https://www.infotravelromania.com/bus-783-airport-henri-coanda-unirii-old-town/
3. Taxi - I personally do not recommend this option because of the often scams. If you want to go with a taxi you can use the self-order machines for taxis. You can find the machine when you exit the security area of the terminal. It is less likely to be scammed if you're using the machine. Usually pay by card is not available, so you will need cash. The higher-fare taxis (approx 3.5 RON / km) accept credit cards.

Getting around in Bucharest:
Subway is usually the fastest and most reliable way to get around in Bucharest. You can buy the tickets from every subway station from the vending machine.

Our usual hotel recommendations:
1. Intercontinental, https://www.ihg.com/intercontinental/hotels/us/en/bucharest/buhha/hoteldetail/concierge
2. Europe Royale Hotel, https://www.europaroyalebucharest.com/
3. Hilton Garden Inn Bucharest Old Town, https://hiltongardeninn3.hilton.com/en/hotels/romania/hilton-garden-inn-bucharest-old-town-BUHGIGI/index.html

Booking and Airbnb are also available.
My personal recommendation is to pick a place anywhere between Piata Victoriei and Piata Unirii on the Bucharest Metro Line M2 (the blue line). It will be super easy to get to the campus by subway and it's also a pretty lively and nice area to explore in the evening.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me. I will return with more information about the schedule and access to the building in the following days.

See y'all soon,
