DebConf Announcements for 2018-07-29

Dear DebConfers,

== The DebConf team needs YOU!! ==

Plenty of tasks are popping up on our volunteering system. Most of
them don't need specific training, just a bit of your time. This
helps us make the conference run smoothly for all attendees.

If you would like to lend a hand, please have a look at the list of
tasks on https://debconf18.debconf.org/volunteers/, and do not
hesitate to sign up!

=== Video Team Training ===

The Video Team needs your help to record the sessions. We need
directors, camera operators, sound operators, etc. Training for
these roles is offered on 2018-07-29 in Room X at 21:00.

=== Cheese and Wine Party ===

Item collections are still running. Please register all edibles and
liquids on the wiki[1], and bring them to the Cheese Master after
lunch on 2018-07-30 (ping olasd on IRC, or SMS +886902123594, or

== Note to speakers ==

If you are a speaker, please try to avoid walking around too much.
In rooms X and Y we have taped an area behind the podium which
leaves enough space for you without making people sea-sick watching
the stream. The Video Team will love you for that ❤️. Also try to speak loud and clear, our PA can't deal very well
when you speak quietly or mumble, and we want to avoid feedback
loops. Remember that listeners may not have your language, so speak
a little slower than you're used to. If you arrive ten minutes early
to your talk, there is time to check things out with the video team
(including your slides!).

== Note for the audience ==

People watching the streams love to hear your comments, thus PLEASE
either walk to the mics in the room or wait until you have been
handed a microphone. Otherwise your questions and comments will not
be listenable in the streams.

== Accommodation ==

AC cards loaded with credits are available from the front desk. As
there is a limited quantity of AC cards and as they can only be
recharged with credits during the work week, AC cards will be issued
one per room and preferentially to newly occupied rooms. To avoid
running out of credits, do not operate the AC when the room is not
occupied and set the AC to 'sleep mode' when going to bed.

There are insufficient keys for some rooms. Work with your room
mates to get additional keys cut. Submit a receipt to front desk for

Please use the bucket, mop, cleaning fluid made available in each
washroom to mop your room's floors.

Shower gel is available in each washroom. Please, for the love of
olfactory, use it.

Laundry soap is available in each laundry room. The laundry machines
take TWD 10 coins.

== Day Trips ==

On Wednesday, the day trip busses will depart promptly from MIRC.
Don't be late.

== Code of Conduct ==

Be reminded of the DebConf Code of Conduct. We are a welcoming and
safe community.
