Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

The twitter rumors are true! BarCampYXE is back.

The team of organizers are still hammering out some details and making arrangements for this to be another great event. Here’s what we know for sure so far.

When: May 2, 2015, approximately noon till 9PM
Where: VendAsta headquarters, 4th floor, 220 3rd Ave S
Food: Refreshments and pizza supper will be available at a nominal price.

Tickets: We aren’t issuing tickets this year, but we will send out an RSVP in March so we can start getting an idea of numbers. Watch this space and twitter for announcements.

Talks: Start preparing those talks, Barcampers! We plan on having two tracks for at least part of the day. The schedule, as always, will be created right before we kick off the event (if you can’t be there for the whole day, maybe don’t commit to talk). In March or April, we’ll send out a request for you to submit your talk ideas (not for approval, but again just to get a rough idea numbers).

Code of Conduct: The Code of Conduct is a commitment from us, the organizers, that we will provide a fair, safe, respectful environment for you, the attendees. The expectations for attendees are the same as they’ve always been, just now they’re written down. Read it here. Contact Kari Halsted or Chris de Jong if you have any questions remaining after reading it.

Sponsors: We will have some expenses (chair rental, snacks) we require sponsorship money for. If your business is interested in sponsoring, please contact Kari (kayayarai on gmail).

So excited! Please share this announcement with your social networks, friends, and colleagues. Follow us on twitter and this blog for more announcements and information. See you May 2!
