Please edit this wiki page. (You'll need to login first. See the login link at the top.) It contains all the information about the FOSS Fair including a list of sessions that YOU are interested in presenting. Sessions are informal, fun, and about an Open Source related topic or simply a time to hash out ideas, code, or projects.

If you are planning to attend please sign up below. You must sign up by Friday, February 1st to be included in the lunch count.

Pictures and Cool Stuff

What's a Free and Open Source Software Fair?

The FOSS Fair is an unconference or BarCamp style event. It is completely driven by you, the participants. Any topic relating to Free and Open Source Software is welcome.

Then give a talk at the FOSS Fair! We are looking for students, staff, faculty, guests, and especially STUDENTS to give sessions. Plan your next Open Source project, seek input from the community, hack out some code, and practice your community leadership skills. Sign up below to schedule your session at the FOSS Fair February 9th!

A brief description

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.
