Hi all,

It would be nice to organize a weekend like the Barcelona Long Weekend we (the Maemo Community) organized on October 2009. These two days should be completly organized by the community and for the community. No formal conferences or talks, but interactive activities and hacking sessions where you, the partecipant, are the main actor.

What about the content of these two days? We could have (for example) programming tutorials, Qt tutorials, hacking sessions on a specific task, round tables where a developer explains his difficoulties implementing a feature and the others help him, ecc...

I really think these two days will give one more reason for people to come to the MeeGo Conference in Dublin.

The first thing to do is spreading this and asking people (users, developers ecc...) what they would like to find during these two days. Once we've gathered some nice ideas we can organize them better.

I've prepared a page on the wiki where we'll add informations once we get new ideas or details about these two days. You can find the page here: http://wiki.meego.com/MeeGo_Conferen...ly_Bird_Events

So please post here you ideas and let's start the discussion

For any information you can contact me or Thomas Perl (we're both organizing this event). Of course if there are any other volunteers who want to help us they will be welcome!

p.s: the official thread to continue the discussion is hosted on MeeGo Forum: http://forum.meego.com/showthread.php?t=1342

I like this idea. The Barcelona Long Weekend was very fruitful.
This would be a good reason to arrive in Dublin a day earlier.

Trust me, I share that disappointment! I'll help you share this out though.
