2011/South Africa/MidrandJHBPTA

After consultation with the various user groups and parties interested in SFD it was decided to hold SFD at a location somewhere in Midrand. We estimate the venue size should be able to accommodate 50-60 people. We are still looking for venues but the following have been suggested:

Organisation of the event

The plan is to have various tracks for the day and organise talks for these tracks. Track may run in parallel but its not necessary for a track to fill every time slot on the day. So far the following tracks have been suggested:

To Do

Setup a web site that is hoped will be come the focal point of the FOSS community.

We agreed to setup a web site for people to register to attend the event. (Not compulsorary) We want to get an idea of numbers but more importantly we would like it to become a central site to link to the various foss user groups and where we can aggregate event information such as user group meetings etc.

Willem can you help?

yeah, yeah - corny names but feel free to suggested others :)
