Assembly Online 2020 - 14th to 18th of October

category: parties [glöplog]
The news is out so I thought it would be good to start a new thread for our Assembly Online 2020 extravaganza!

As we all know, there is this covid-19 thing. It unfortunately didn't go away during the summer so we needed to do the hard decision and cancel the physical event scheduled to 15th to 18th of October. However, we just didn't want to cancel it all, so we decided to move online!

The online event will have demoscene competitions, demoshows, some workshops etc. for demosceners. :) There will be also the gaming and e-sports things. As we move online, we also decided to make the event a day longer! So Assembly online 2020 starts already at Wednesday 14th of October!

More information is in our website that will also work as an event hub during the online event!

You can read the official announcement here.

And one thing I forgot to mention, the event is free of charge! So there will be no tickets required for participating the compos, watching or voting! <3

The e-mail message for ticket buyers hinted that there will be smaller events by co-operating organizations for watching compos. I'm waiting for more information about these. They would encourage to throw some entries in.

(This might have also been a good chance to have a real demo party without gamers, if only those who bring entries had been let in. But it seems this option wasn't chosen.)

You can always organize your own viewing party which can be what ever you like it to be. :) This time we spend our energy to provide you the best experience we can do in online setup.

What comes to the co-operating organizations hosting viewings, we will tell you when we have more information.

@rimina For organizing a small viewing party, it would be nice to have a timetable. Is there something in the making?

Six distinct sites have been announced but they are describes as "LANs" and "game spaces" so I assume they are not highly relevant for sceners (the information is from Assembly's official e-mails sent to ticket buyers).

Instead I have been told, that now it's up to people to organize something. So far, I haven't heard that any scener would organize anything around the capital area.

(according to rumours, Tampere hacklab organises a gathering. I assume it's for their members)

Gaming related sites given in Assemby's e-mail are listed here:
(addition: as you can see, rimina writes above that asm's demoscene department uses its resources to organize an online-event. the rest is up to others)
(sorry about my impulsive not-informative-adding posts. i take some sedatives now)
I am thinking about a remote party in Leipzig/Germany like we did for Solskogen. Watching the demoscene stream, having some beers with local scenes. A demoscene related timetable would be very useful.
