Community Jam – 2009


clip_image001Announcing Community Jam! Are you passionate about community? Always wanted to start a User Group, schedule a developer event or just curious about what is a TechMasters chapter? You're invited to the first annual Community Jam being held at the Upstream Brewing Company in Omaha on Wednesday Oct 14 from 2:00 to 6:30 before the Heartland Developer Conference kicks off.

The goal of this summit is to bring together the developer community enthusiasts to share goals and best practices for building great things for our fellow technologist. We will take an open spaces format to make sure you get value for your time.

Proposed Agenda:

2:00 - 2:30  :  Welcome – meet & greet

2:30 - 3:30  :  Open Session 1 (3 groups...topics to be determined)

3:45 - 4:45  :  Open Session 2

5:00 - 6:00  :  Open Session 3

6:00 - 6:15  :  Closing thoughts

This is meant to be open to any and all members of the technical community, both Microsoft and non-Microsoft technologies. Ideas for topics for the open sessions might include how to start a user group, presentation tips 101, how to create a killer demo, event logistics for the beginner, social media 101, TechMasters 101, etc. It will be a great chance to network with technical professionals that are as enthused about the community as you are
