Latest revision as of 06:51, 2 January 2013

SugarCamp++ will be Mon Oct 22 to Wed Oct 24 in San Francisco (business hours especially) immediately following OLPC SF's global community summit.

Presenting an opportunity for all to begin real hacking & implementation of the tech/learning/organizational ideas exchanged over the weekend summit

Please join & help strengthen collaborative global education! Inspired by the rapidly-approaching dream of Sugar 1.0 and the XO-4.

We strongly welcome new participants. Read up on ongoing projects, think about volunteering with Sugar Labs and OLPC, open your imagination to what open-learning-for-all might become -- and put yourself on the map :)

Registration

Be sure to add your name to the "Attendees" list above, with a couple words about your interests, and also write to holt @ laptop.org confirming there's still room!

Both rooms below will be free (thanks to the amazing generosity of SF State University's College of Business) with reliable Wifi included -- lunch/dinner is available for individual purchase downstairs at the large Food Court.

Note the preceding weekend's Oct 19-21 Community Summit itself (structured talks/demos/panels etc, you don't want to miss, please register now!) costs $25 to $40/person to pay for facilities rental, great community shirts, supplies etc. A price that would indeed be an order of magnitude higher if it weren't for the astonishing volunteer efforts of the http://olpcSF.org community :)

Location

In 2 modern classrooms, Oct 22-24 (Mon to Wed), 8AM to 5PM:

San Francisco State University
Rooms 667 & 668
835 Market St, 6th Floor (go downtown, NOT main campus)
San Francisco, CA 94103

Evening Excitement

Nearby pubs will be well-used too! (And restaurants, and large food court below SFSU/downtown)
