It’s going to be a busy summer.
Open Source Bridge, June 21-24
The 3rd year of our conference for open source citizens. In addition to being on the planning committee (talk to me if you need a media pass or want to schedule a BoF), I’m moderating a panel on building and maintaining open source communities.
Indie Web Camp, June 25-26
Assuming I don’t fall over from exhaustion first, I’ll be at this unconference/hacking event for people working on distributed social software.
Community Leadership Summit, July 23-24
I’ve never been to CLS before, but this unconference on building tech communities has been recommended to me several times, so I signed up.
OSCON, July 25-29
Christie Koehler, Sherri Montgomery, and I will be presenting Event Planning for Geeks, a condensed guide to successful unconferences, code sprints, and beyond.
SecondConf, September 23-25
I’ll speaking at this Chicago conference for iOS and Mac developers, on some combination of mobile devices, game design, location, and not being creepy (unless, of course, that’s your goal). Creepius will probably make an appearance.
WhereCampPDX, October 7-9
Portland’s location and technology unconference is on year 4! I still love helping plan this event. We haven’t really started the planning process in earnest (first everyone has to get through OSBridge) but you can join the mailing list to find out what’s happening as soon as we know it ourselves.
