Birds of a Feather Signups Now Open

Have a passion you'd like to share? Have a community you'd like to connect with? Want some open discussion on a topic? Create or join a Birds of a Feather (BoF) session  after the Friday and Saturday talks.

SCaLE 11x will continue the tradition of providing space for groups to meet and discuss their common interests. The BoFs will be Friday and Saturday nights, February 22nd and 23rd. The first BoFs start at 19:00 and the last start at 22:00.

Sign up on the Birds of a Feather registration page.  

If your organization is interested in sponsoring snacks or beverages for a BoF, please let SCaLE know by contacting

Want a Maker BoF (Raspberry Pi, Arduino, soldering, knitting, etc.)? A board and card games BoF (Settlers of Catan, Anti-Monopoly, poker)? A foodie BoF? Programming? Cloud computing? Big data? Community building? Open data and open standards? Cars? Market forecasting? An excursion to an offsite activity?

BoFs should be as informal as possible with group interaction -- not just one person giving a presentation. Even better is if there is positive inter-group interaction such as multiple local user groups meeting together or various database groups meeting to discuss future database and big data needs in the FLOSS ecosystem.
