    Hello!I suppose that the meeting is more suitable for those who are not familiar with St. Petersburg and the surrounding area. Will it be interesting for those who live here and want to have fun and usefully? Thank you :-)

  4. Anna Gordeeva

    Sankt-Peterburg, Saint Petersburg, Russian Federation

    Hey :)
    the program will be posted this weekend but IMHO it`s interesting for everyone (the organizers live here :) but we organizer only the things we want to do ourselves :)
    And also when you live in the city you don`t know SO many things about it...the best way to know it better -with guests :)

    What Anna said!

    Normally in this type of big CS events, you get a mix of locals and travelers.
    The event is not just about exploring the city but about to meet new people (and old friends) and have lots of fun activities and parties all together.
    If you have never experienced a "CS Camp", you should definitely try one! ^__^
