What's an Unconference?
"An unconference is a conference where the content of the sessions is driven and created by the participants, generally day-by-day during the course of the event, rather than by a single organizer, or small group of organizers, in advance."
Jasig and Sakai have always been about people coming together to share and learn in an open environment, and this is what an "unconference" is all about. The unconference format fits very well with our community values and goals. This January event is our sixth Unconference and will provide both spontaneous and planned opportunities to collaborate on all Jasig and Sakai community initiatives as well as initiatives from other community open source communities as well. Mark your calendar, make plans to join us and register as soon as registration opens up!
What are we going to do?!
The Jasig-Sakai Unconference consists of multiple face to face sessions occurring throughout the day. Some sessions may have more formal presentations, most sessions involve heavy interaction with the audience as a whole. The list of topics, presenters and facilitators is very dynamic and the final schedule will be determined in real-time, interactively with the attendees. Topics will likely include:
- Project updates, roadmap planning, and implementer/developer collaboration on a wide range of community projects: Bedework, CAS, OpenRegistry, Portlets, Sakai CLE, Sakai OAE, Student Success Plan (SSP), uMobile, uPortal, Grouper, Shibboleth, etc.
- Sessions on Identity & Access Management, Mobile devices, development tools/techniques, and other general areas of technical interest
- Discussions around Teaching & Learning, Openness and Open Source (2/3/98 Project), and the Jasig/Sakai merger into Apereo
- Professional networking and community building
OK, I'm interested! What do I do next?
Get registered here, make your travel arrangements, and get ready for some great collaboration.
