Meetup: Tor Community Night at PETS

by phoul | June 11, 2018

Hello Tor community, relay operators, and PETS attendees!
A couple weeks ago when I introduced my new role as Relay Advocate, I mentioned we are planning a relay operators meetup at PETS in Barcelona. This is moving forward, and we have some new details to share with you.
We are hosting a "Tor Community Night" after Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS) event hours on Tuesday, July 24th beginning at 6:30PM. Attendance at PETS is not required to attend this meetup. All are welcome.

Come meet other relay operators and Tor-minded folks

This will be a great opportunity for members of the community to meet each other and socialize, as well as an opportunity for anyone interested in Tor to come and meet each other and become part of the Tor community. Within this event, there will be a dedicated relay operators meetup, which will begin at 7:00PM. If you run relays, or are at all interested in running relays, please be sure to attend.
We will discuss common issues operators face, potential solutions, as well as how we can all help to grow the relay operator community both locally and globally. We'll be on hand to answer questions and want to hear your feedback about the community, running relays, and what we can do to better support you.
If operating a relay isn't something you're interested in, but you still love Tor or want to learn more, please come say hi. There will be various Tor Project community members around who will be happy to talk with you, and we will be running a mini workshop on onion service deployment for everyday uses, for people not interested in the relay operator side of things.  Who knows, you may decide to join the operator community by the end of the night.
At 8:30PM we will be moving the community night to the near-by Belgian bar Belchica, at Carrer de Villarroel, 60, 08011. If you were unable to join us earlier in the evening, please do not hesitate to stop by for a drink or a bite to eat (there will be vegan options available).
Date: July 24th, 2018
Start Time: 18:30 / 6:30PM Barcelona time (GMT+2)
Operator meet-up / Onion workshop: 19:00 / 7:00PM Barcelona time (GMT+2)

If you're reading this and thinking "I'm definitely going to that!" but I have not heard from you, you can get in contact with me at This is for us to get some idea of how many people to anticipate, but your RSVP is not required. Your information will not be used for anything other than estimating the number of attendees.
