All,

We talked about the possibility of getting some ideas about
extracurricular activities during the Conj days (and possibly training
days). I've created a spreadsheet at the link below to collect
ideas. It is not my intention to be the organizer of these
activities. Instead, if you have an idea then please be prepared to
own it. The matter of space for these activities would need to be
worked out by Conj planners or activity organizers, but having a list
would help that process.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Alim_jfrt24MdDFqZVZsNW0tamtQR2pPTHJZTkN6Y0E&hl=en_US

I've entered an example, feel free to add your own ideas. :-)

This should be epic.

Please note that nothing is too humble! If you have a cool piece of
code or technique that you'd like to show off for 10 minutes then by
all means put it on the spreadsheet.

ClojureScript Birds of a Feather (I'm not going to lead this one though, but it seems like an obvious add)
miniKanren / core.logic Birds of a Feather (I'm open to leading this one)

BTW, is this meant to be editable by anyone else? Or are you going to collect the ideas off this thread and enter them?

It should be editable by anyone with a Google account. Please let me
know if that's not the case.

I'm going to add a column for people to add themselves (either by name or handle) as "planning to attend". Even an inaccurate count would help the organizer ensure a proper space is found for the session/workshop/talk/whatever.

One idea would be to organize something for people wanting to set up local
clojure meetups. I don't think this needs to be a BOF, but I don't know the best
way to promote the idea.

Anyone coming with family and/or spouse-dates? If so, let us locals know so
we can suggest some local activities.

This is not coding-related, but do we have any musicians in the
group? I'm going to have a violin with me and would love to jam or
sight-read. Maybe the Overtone guys would be interested in this?

If there's any interest I'll set up a doodle poll to see what
instruments people might play or have.

You could just add the "session", and ask that attendees indicate their instrument in the "attending" column?

I will be joined by my wife and our toddler. I think she's planning on
visiting some of the local museums while we're there, but I don't think
she has any specific plans, yet.

As far as things on the spreadsheet that interest me are:

1. core.logic/minikanren
2. Tooling BoF
3. Jamming with Overtone
4. Web and Clojure


I'd like to propose a new activity: Android. It'd be more of a hack and
chat about doing Android development in Clojure. Some things to talk
about could include creating Clojure-friendly tools for Android
development and perhaps the possibility of an Android contrib module.

Thanks,

Damn, Damn, Damn.  I'm very new to clojure, and joined this forum just a few weeks ago.  The fact that there are sessions at Clojure Conj  on two of my passions (Go and Literate Programming), and that I'm unable to attend, frustrates me to no end.

I assume that the session on Go refers to the Asian board game known as  Go/Baduk/Wei Chi.  If someone could pop a note to me offline on what work Clojure programmers are doing with Go, I'd really appreciate it.

According to the conference schedule the conference room is available until 11pm on Thursday. I don't know how big the room is, but as long as the Overtone folks don't get too loud ;), that might be a good place and time to have a mini open conference. As long as all the people involved take responsibility for returning the room to it's "conference state" at the end of the night, that might work well?

Doug

Oh, I guess that's me.

See the floorplan for reference.

We have the Oak Forest ballroom until midnight on Thursday and Friday and until 5pm on Saturday. This room holds 300 people. Since this is the main conference room, we would need it back in the same setup when the room is locked up at midnight that we need it when it is unlocked the next morning. 

We have the Atrium area, which is setup to hold around 50 people at round tables, until midnight on Thursday and Friday and noon on Saturday. This is designated as our "game area." So, Go should definitely be happening here. This is an open area, and will feel more publicly accessible, passersby will possibly stop to see what's going on if it looks interesting.

We have the Presidents Boardroom until midnight on Thursday and Friday and 6pm on Saturday. This is a small room that can hold about 20. So, smaller groups should use this room.

There are also smaller public spaces round the ballroom where people could meet up for some organized hack sessions, etc.

But, keep in mind that things are pretty heavily scheduled during this time as well. The plan is to have lightning talks in the ballroom on Thursday evening. Of course, many of those can be combined with the planning that's happening here. And Friday night, we have the party at the ArtSpace.

Beyond that ... Chas said something about using his room when I mentioned I was wondering when and where all of these things were going to take place. I'm going to have to assume everyone that wants to organize some kind of activity is willing to do something similar. :)

So, to be specific, lets assume that the literate programming
session will meet in the presidential boardroom at 7pm on
wednesday evening. It will likely be a small group and I don't
expect it to take long. It is only scheduled for 15 minutes.
