> Dear mesh enthusiasts,
> We can now officially announce it, Wireless Battle of the Mesh is going
> virtual! According to the poll , WBMv13 will take place between 14th and
> 15th November 2020!
> After some months of reconsideration, we have concluded that it would be
> kinda difficult to do the WBMv13 in person this year :..(
> But our mission can't be shutdown by a mere 7.5 kilobytes of RNA - there
> will be a dedicated mesh developer/community event in 2020!
> The rough idea, for now, is to put together a schedule of around 10
> interesting presentations, via BigBlueButton (streamcopied to
> Peertube/YouTube) and a set of topic-based rooms on a voice chat server
> (mumble). For now, things are still flexible - we can change this model
> according to the expected number of participants. We could also use this
> event to try running distributed experiments.
> Please SPREAD this link (or the announcement text below this email) wide
> and far:
> Your help is appreciated :)
> + info is being updated at the WBMv13 wiki at
> We are looking forward to meeting the whole community in November!
> All the best,
