In the past several companies spontaneously opened their office space on the Bug Days. Developers could meet there and – even better – were sometimes catered for (a pizza a day keeps the hacker happy). Now that the Bug Days are rolling again, I would like to encourage this practice. If you’re a company, a public administration, a university or any other kind of entity that can provide a group of developers with a place to sit and hack away, consider offering some of your space for a Bug Day. All that is really needed is a desk, a chair and an internet access (minimum required: web, mail, IRC and newsgroups). A beamer may be a plus, but is not absolutely necessary. If you want to be really nice, you could even provide drinks and maybe even lunch.
