Now that we’ve had a week to catch up and publish some images, video’s and even a report from the event, I’d like to thank all the attendees as well as the speakers for a great time! I already look forward to next years summer event at Juvasshytta, but the next gotoAndSki event may actually happen before that! Follow this blog for upcoming announcements…

Here are the sides from some of the sessions:
Mihai Corlan on Debugging and Android. Richard Lord on Frameworks. My slides on Flash Authoring tools as well as the Away3D workshop slides.

For those of you that had to leave early on sunday and missed out on a full day with 20 cm of fresh powder snow – here’s a taste of what you missed:

Thank you so much to Fernando for bringing the Airboards and introducing us to this new sport. I am definitely getting one of these for next season!

FUGN is now accepting registrations for gotoAndSki(); at Juvasshytta June 11-13 2010.

As Juvasshytta is not a big hotel we need to reserve rooms for all participants as soon as possible. The rooms are for three persons with shower and shared bathroom. We have a limited number of these rooms (10 first attendees), but we also have access to other rooms with shared shower and bathroom.

We will have an open agenda during the day where it is possible to ski, hike or take a guided tour. After dinner Friday and Saturday there will be Flash and mobile related sessions. The program is not finalized, but we welcome speakers to submit their proposal.

Ticket price is 1990 NOK pr. person. The price covers two nights, breakfast and a three course meal on friday and saturday. Depending on what you want to do of activities, these is an additional cost. The gotoAndSki(); conference is non-profit.

This summer, Flash User Group Norway (FUGN) will put on a two day miniconference called GotoAndSki. The conference will take place 11th – 13th June 2010 at the classic summer ski resort Juvass Hytta, at the foot of the highest mountain in Northern Europe – Galdhøpiggen.

The basic plan is to spend the days outdoors, meeting people, skiing, snowboarding, hiking and networking. After dinner at Juvasshytta, the conference program will start with three one hour sessions each evening. The conference program and speakers are not finalized but we’ll post details here as they are finalized.

Galdhøpiggen is one of the few places in Norway offering good summer ski. It’s only one 1400 meter run, but there’s a snowboard park with boxes and jumps of varying styles and if the weather is good, you can go skiing wearing only shorts! (more info)

It you’re more into trekking, the Galdhøpiggen mountain is also just outside the door. Raging at 2,469 m (8,100 ft) above sea level, it’s the highest peak in Northern Europe and the hike to the top is just fantastic. On the way up, you’ll be tied together with ropes as you cross the Styggedals-glacier. The trip is 6-7 hours and includes a good break at the summit where there’s a small cabin where you can buy warm drinks, snacks and stamped postcards (more info).

We are aiming to make this affordable and Juvass Hytta is not a fancy hotel. It’s a mountain hut that is part of the Norwegain Trekking Association that offers simple and good quality at an affordable price. We have already booked some rooms (2-3 persons share the room), but since we are financing this ourselves, we can’t order the whole place. Attendance is thus limited, but we have a couple options when it comes to fitting in more people. The earlier you register, the better room you’ll get is the general rule. Registration will open mid-April.
