Just a quick, but important note to avoid confusion: Italy's timezone is GMT+1, not +2.
It would be +2 counting in the DST (Daytime Saving Time), but only for those countries which don't observe it (just a few in Europe and North America).

Also, it should be added that the "Integrated development with AVD" speech will be held by Dario Soccoli AND Eliseo Bianchi.

If unsure about the date or time. Look at this page:

http://timeanddate.com/worldclock/city.html?n=341

Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Edit:

When daylight savings time is in effect UK is GMT+1, Italy (CE(S)T) is GMT+2

Firenze:
Standard time zone: UTC/GMT +1 hour
Daylight saving time: +1 hour
Current time zone offset: UTC/GMT +2 hours
Time zone abbreviation: CEST - Central European Summer Time

So if it's 12pm in UK now, it's 13pm in Italy.

Hmm, maybe we could do an developer-question-list, so that
the questions do not derail to the recent events.

That way it would be atleast a constructive irc-session.

Just an idea.

I didn't understand that. GMT+2 is GMT+2 whether DST is in effect or not. The reference point - GMT - doesn't change. When Italy is in DST, its timezone is GMT+2 no matter what your local timezone may be.

Cheers,
Rich

@all

Italy = CET (GMT+1). So, right now there's a 6 hours difference between NYC and Firenze.
Samantha: not directly related to this event. Here they're talking about the Dev Conference. According to the website, Sam will be presented at 11am local time (but I confess that I have a bit of confusion about the time schedule).

@evilrich
it does... just like Italy is Denmark also using GMT+1 (GMT+2) - GMT stays "constant" nomatter if it is DST or not.

from the "official" source:
Quote:
Standard Time = GMT+1
Summer Time = GMT+2

@Lecta & mordock

Reference in the title was made to an earlier announcement here:
http://amigaworld.net/modules/news/article.php?storyid=3294

Quote:
Talking about the conferences planned for Saturday 23rd September, we will start at 11.00 AM with the official presentation of project "Samantha"

ok. "Samantha" at 11:00am.

Quote:
then, at 2.00 PM the first Amiga Developer's Conference will start.

ok. You said "one hour earlier than previously announced.
ok. Developer's conference at 1:00pm.

For those on the East coast of the U.S. (EST) this means the "Samantha" presentation
is 5:00am, the conference is 7:00am, and the Hyperion irc session is 11:30am.

I still believe it would be worth reprinting this schedule in the "news" realease,
since some people will not read the posts underneath.
Also, if starting at 1:00pm instead of 12:00pm pushes anything "back", we would
have another misunderstanding about the irc session time.

NYC is in EDT right now, which is GMT-4. So, if Italy is in GMT+1, then the difference is 5 hours.

Italy is GMT+2 right now, because of summer time.

Sorry for the confusion. I thought that the GMT+1 notation remained the same also under DST, since the time difference remains the same (1 hour) as both Italy and Great Britain observe the DST. Timezones are sometimes such a mess.

@Varthall

It's simple really.
Fix the schedule (including the correct time for the Hyperion chat).
Contact a moderator if necessary to either make a "new" news piece and/or
delete this one which is becoming quite convoluted at this point.

I'll post with the key events expressed in terms of time as those in the U.S.
can relate to more easily.

I recon it could be less confusion if we didn't mention GMT at all.
Like Italy is always CET.
