Schedule

We will start the Fair at 9:00 AM with a Welcome and Introduction session in room 3211 that will run to 9:50. During the introduction everyone that would like to host a session, hackathon, or informal talk will give a short, 30 to 60 second blurb about what they are going to do. Attendees will be able to rate which sessions they'd like to go to. We'll use that information to schedule the rest of the day in the various rooms we have reserved.

The rest of the day starts at 10:00 AM and all sessions will run 50 minutes and be followed by a 10 minute break. Please keep your session on time. The 12:00 PM session will be our lunch in room 3211. (Remember to sign up to be included for food.) We'll run in a similar pattern until we're done or 5:00 PM.

Any time after the FOSS Fair, please join us at Sammy's in Mission Valley off of Avent Ferry Road.
