Attend an Event

Help by attending an event and talking about the Sugar mission. The current list of Events is kept here: MarketingTeam/Events. Feel free to attend one of these, or add your own!

What kind of events should I be attending?

  • Educational events. Educators should be helping guide the direction of Sugar, and we should be bringing more of them to the table.
  • Developer events. We always need more developers, both core and activity. Finding Python developers will be especially useful.
  • BarCamps. There are constantly BarCamps going on all over the world ([[1]]) and they are extremely participatory in nature. Show up in the morning, pitch a session about Sugar, and see who comes to your talk. A great way of getting in front of people.

What should I be doing?

  • Create and distribute Sugar live media. The best way to convince people to use Sugar is by making it easy for them to try Sugar -- and with such a broad array of choices (Supported_systems#Starch), this should be simple for anyone to help with.
  • Host a BoF session. Most conference have Birds of a Feather sessions. Propose a Sugar BoF and be ready to answer lots of questions.
  • Offer to speak. Many conferences need good speakers to fill out speaker slots. Don't be shy!

Participating in Marketing Team meetings

We hold Marketing Team meetings every week. Come to a meeting, pick up a small task, and help move the mission forward! Learn more at MarketingTeam/Meetings.
