It’s a day for unconferencing! What’s an unconference? It’s the ultimate “conference” style for those who like surprises and mentor-network-community building! Basically, attendees sign up with a specific interest they wish to discuss. Information, opinions, and experiences are shared, and people are mentored.
Today’s unconference is open to the general open source community in Portland, whether you’re attending the conference or not. If you know someone who doesn’t have a conference pass would like to attend, have them register for the Community Pass.
I’m a bit late in posting this since scheduling began at 9am, and sessions started at 10:15am, so you probably don’t have time to suggest a session of your own. However, there’s still plenty of time to check out the schedule and participate in the festivities. Though, hurry! It all ends at 4pm with the last session starting at 3:30pm! Hang out afterward for the “thanks for being fantastic participants” raffling off of several fabulous O’Reilly books.
You can share your session ideas or read everyone else’s on the wiki.
No one there? Check out the local food carts for lunch. There’s a large cluster at SW 9th and Alder, with many others scattered nearby.
If you’re looking for something to do after that, check out Beer and Blog at the Green Dragon in SE Portland, or visit Calagator for other ideas.
They Love Feedback!
