Duckling - Meet with others, arrange your outings!

We would like to introduce you to Duckling - a social service for arranging or finding outings with fellow attendees. Duckling is a new service and has been used successfully during the last PyCON 2014 in Montreal. Duckling is a service provided for free to the Python community by Caktus Group (@DucklingQuacks).

Say you want to go for Sushi one night and want to find other attendees with the same interest then you login into Duckling using your Twitter account and see a list of upcoming outings planned by other people of the event.

Just search for a Sushi location using the search functionality of Duckling.

After finding the right place, you set up the date and time for the outing, give some additional information and that’s it.

Other attendees can check the EuroPython Ducklings site and see what will be going on and join your event. Your outing will show a map of the location and perhaps some additional information pulled in through Yelp.

You can not only arrange outings for eating and drinking but you can also use Duckling for arranging visits to interesting places in Berlin, finding others for a morning run at the Volkspark Friedrichain or whatever you want.
