FAQ

Here are the answers 🙂

 

What is demoscene & demoparty?

The demoscene is an international computer art subculture that specializes in producing demos: small, self-contained computer programs that produce audio-visual presentations. The main goal of a demo is to show off programming, artistic, and musical skills.

A demoparty is an event which gathers demomakers and provides them with competitions to compete in. A typical demoparty is a non-stop event lasting over a weekend, providing the visitors a lot of time for socializing. The competing works, at least those in the most important competitions, are usually shown at night, using a video projector and big loudspeakers.

More info at Wikipedia Demoscene Article

I’m a newbie and want to attend this party. Is it appropriate place for me?

Everyone interested in demoscene is invited to Silesia Party9 – The Last 8bit Supper. You can come to party, meet new people and have great fun without any obligation to submit your works, however the most active demosceners are the most respected.

How can I submit my work to compo?

You can hand your compo entries directly to orgs at party place or submit by e-mail to silesia.orgos@gmail.com specifying your scene handle and compo to participate in e-mail title, e.g. YourNick / Demo compo.

Do you provide sleeping at party place?

We do. There will be designated sleeping zone and, moreover, all info about nearby accommodation will be displayed at party website.

Will alcohol and beer be available at party place? What about food?

It is a pub thus you have access to good beer around here. We don’t plan to create exclusive refreshments but there are many shops around where you can equip yourselves with something to eat. We’re going to serve free snacks on Friday but we cannot predict how quickly they’re going to vanish 😉

Will online streaming be available for sofa-sceners?

Nope. This is the very last edition of Silesia Party, so be there, or be square.

Can I bring my own beverages to the party place?

We want everyone to be pleased, however we rely on owner’s hospitality and urge you not to bring your own alcoholic drinks to Pub Underground.

I’d like to support you with a donation – how can I do it?

Every instance of financial support is very precious for us. Easiest way to donate the orgs is using http://paypal.me/silesiaparty or getting in touch with us by e-mail. Silesia Party is still a non-profit event – organized by sceners for sceners.

I’d like to help in organizing this party and I have ideas how to make it even better and more interesting. Can I get in touch with you in this matter?

Yes. Throwing a big event is both complex and time consuming therefore more hands to help are always welcome. Write to silesia.orgos@gmail.com how you would like to help us – we’d love to cooperate!

I’m broke and entrance fee is too much for me. Can we make a deal?

Sure. Shit happens sometimes so we are open for any suggestions. Just write an appropriate e-mail to silesia.orgos@gmail.com that shortly explains your reason for lower entrance fee.

Can I come here with my own gear?

Sure. We provide all people who bring their own computers with free tables and power equipment. We urge everyone interested to tick “Yes – I bring my own gear” in register form. It will greatly help us in estimating how much equipment we are supposed to prepare for you.
