The closest airport is Düsseldorf. Also possible is Köln/Bonn (train takes 1h, fare is 20€), Weeze/Niederrhein for RyanAir, and Dortmund for some smaller airlines.
There is a regional train from Düsseldorf airport. Go to "Bahnhof Düsseldorf Flughafen Terminal S" which is not the main train station of the airport ("Bahnhof Düsseldorf Flughafen"). From there, take the S7 direction Solingen. Get off after five minutes in D-Derendorf. From platform 2, take the S6 direction Essen Hbf. Get off at Werden S. Text me (Marcel) when you board the train in Derendorf or when you have got lost.
Get your route from Google Maps

- or go to platform 12, take the regional train S6 Köln-Nippes. Get off at Werden S.
For either choice the fare is €2.30. Text me (Marcel) when you board the bus or the train to be picked up.

Experience shows that wireless usually breaks down at the beginning of a coding sprint, so ethernet is preferred and we need a

Very important topic ;-) We can do some cooking. My suggestion is semi-self-made Pizza for Friday evening and Spaghetti for lunch Saturday and Sunday. Add any objections or wishes here in the wiki.
Last year in Genoa we went to a restaurant for dinner Saturday evening, I enjoyed that quite much. I would suggest we continue in this tradition this year as well.
