I want to organize annual Sailfish conference/summit targeted at app developers, users, TOH creators, fans and all the others individuals/groups/companies interested in Sailfish. I am sure that in couple of months there will be a lot more of topics to discuss, ideas and experiences to share than we have now and a big, Sailfish only dedicted event where community could meet up is a must.

My primary objectives:

  • 2 days of conference + optional day for trainings
  • affordable event for all - event not only for those living in Western Europe, but making it also accesible to those outside EU, providing active help to get a Schengen visa for conference attendees from countries that require it

Activities during event:

  • Standard talks/presentations (typically 30-45 min)
  • Lightning talks (short 5 min. presentations of ideas, apps)
  • Hacking space (for those who want to use the event as an opportunity to hack on something together with others)
  • Users and developers support desk (for those who seek small and big help - for example in putting Sailfish on their Android devices when it will be possible)
  • Stands/place area for companies and sponsors
  • Social event at the end of the day for better community integration
  • Trainings (for those who don't have time for self-learning or are just a bit lazy for that)

How to help?

Please send your ideas of topics and things you would like to see on the conference in answers/comments to this post on Together. Also if you think that you have time and could actively help me in preparing this event feel free to mail me (I highly recommend writing short description about yourself and ways you could help) at: fklebczyk@wecamo.eu

My experience:

I have been organizing or taking part in organization of various technical-oriented events for almost 10 years. My biggest, own created (from scratch) event this far had more than 300 attendees.

Please make it on weekend, so that not everyone has to take 5 days vacation for this event.

@ortylp for me weekend is quite obvious - it works the best when it comes to community events
