Birds of a Feather Sessions

7:00pm–9:00pm Monday, May 8, 2017

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.

There will also be a schedule board onsite, located at the Level Four meeting rooms, 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.
