Schedule

Pre-conference: If you arrive early, post something on Slack. If I or others are around and available, we might be able to come out for meals or other activities.

Post-conference: Often people stay the day after the conference or for the weekend; informal gatherings have been known to happen.

Developer Retreat: This year there will a multi-day post-conference Developer Retreat, held at Evolve Coworking. Registration for the conference includes the developer retreat. There is no theme; you work on your projects of interest and we discuss them during breaks and meals.


Sunday 6:00pm

Welcome Potluck Barbeque at Bruce’s House (107 WhiteRock). Bring something to grill, cook, or share. There will be food, so if you’re hopeless in the kitchen, just bring beer.

Go to the corner of First and WhiteRock, and you’ll see a building of four townhomes with solar panels on the roof. My unit is the furthest away from the corner, and you’ll see a little white cargo trailer in front. I usually have colorful lights on, as well.
