The Summit will consist of a series of pre-planned and selected
sessions (you can propose one yourself) and “open space” for ad-hoc
sessions on topics that people are interested in sharing on.
This generally means that you will have a lot of very smart people in a small place who have all come there with something to share and a desire to learn. Since this is a free+cheap
event and on a weekend, we also get to welcome folks who can’t usually
take the time or money to go to commercial conferences – so it’s a lot
of fun with fresh faces.
Since this is a free event and entirely volunteer run (and
no, this is not our day job), we also expect active participation from
everyone when it comes to running the conference. This is as simple as
picking up after yourself or actively fixing something if you see it’s
broken, but please feel welcome to take an active role in making this a
great event. We set the stage, but all of you make this happen!
