At the scouting a lively discussion was had regarding quality and detail of various map makers and various grid systems. As such I offered to do a brief session on maps, how to read them, and a comparison of how various mapping agencies (including open street map/ open cycle map), show information on their maps. I'm bringing with me maps covering 11... [see comment section for further information]

On the Eastern end of "Lac de-la Haute-Sure", Esch-sur-Sure is picturesque town that's only a 15 minute Southerly drive from Wiltz. There is to visit the castle, cliffs (no falling down any holes this time!) and choose between a 4km or 8km walk, or just doss around the lakeside depending on the weather.

I've been working on a project over the past few months which includes the use of the OpenCV library for computer vision. I plan to present this project (which, although not quite complete, is still sufficiently interesting, I think) and to discuss some of the capabilities of the OpenCV library. There will also be Lego involved.

Programming for performance. This talk will not give you direct practical programming hints & tips for your current compiler and your current cpu. Rather, it will cover the general issues of changing hardware properties, and where to look when you would like to extract more performance from a system. In this day & age, one can still achieve 100x performance improvements.

Normally held on a Thursday, apparently this traditional event has been preempted by the Pub Quiz on that day. Not worry though, as this *is* pitched as an Unconference on various podcasts (full marks here BTW! :-), let's schedule it for the Wednesday instead.

For the more ambitious bikers attending LBW, lets put together a fouur^H^H^H^Hthree country bike trip with a total distance maybe in the range of 40 - 50 km. Suggestions for routes welcome. Otherwise I will research this within the next few weeks and post updates here and on the mailing list. Update: after reviewing the maps, sampling the layout of Luxemburg's countryside and considering my biking equipment, I'm inclined to think that attempting to take in four countries is a bit too ambitious. So I suggest leaving out France and just make a three country tour, taking in Luxemburg,Belgium and Germany. I'll post a route suggestion today (Monday).

Start: Aug. 20, 2015, 8 a.m.
End: Aug. 20, 2015, 2 p.m.
For those of us unable to join the cycle ride Bastogne is a ~25min drive from Wiltz. There is a lift available so long as you don't mind hugging a pup for the duration; hopefully more vehicles will be going. Something, somwhere, somewhen that may include the possibility of meeting up with the sweaty peddle-monkeys for lunch. Suggestions on what to do on the mailing list or in comments, please (Wood of Peace? Mardasson Memorial?)
