Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions, happening Monday and Wednesday, provide face-to-face exposure to those interested in the same projects and concepts. BoFs can be organized for individual projects or broader topics (best practices, open data, standards, etc.). BoFs are entirely up to you. We post your topic and provide the space and time. You provide the engaging topic.

You may submit your BoF in advance to reserve your slot. There will also be a schedule board onsite, located at the Level Four meeting rooms near registration, where you can sign up for your own BoF in any of the open slots. Please note, BoFs are informal talks that will not have A/V provided.

I’d like to discuss PaaS in academic institutions. What have you seen/done/wanted? Built or bought? We’re picking one at UT (or integrating OS components to do it). Look for a BoF Wednesday evening.

I’d be interested in running a release management workshop as a BoF — we’d consense on descriptions of what inadequate, minimal, solid, and awesome processes would look like, and lead our projects through the first step to improve our release processes. Anyone interested?
