SugarCamp++ will be Mon Oct 22 to Wed Oct 24 in San Francisco, 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!

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 :)

San Francisco State University
835 Market St, 5th Floor (go downtown, NOT main campus!)
San Francisco, CA 94103

In a modern classroom (or possibly 2!) Oct 22-24, most business hours and possibly Mon/Tue early evenings. Nearby pubs will be well-used evenings too.

Cost will be kept to an absolute minimum (possibly free, thanks to the amazing generosity of SFSU) with reliable Wifi included -- lunch/dinner available for purchase downstairs at the large Food Court.

Note the weekend's Oct 19-21 Community Summit itself (structured talks etc, you don't want to miss) typically costs about $40/person to pay for room rental, supplies etc. That price would be an order of magnitude higher if it weren't for the astonishing volunteer efforts of the community.


San Francisco is not cheap, but great hostels are available if you book them early. Please write to the public mailing list for tips, so you can get to know & stay nearby others:


Most welcome (register & click Edit above!) & also here:

Please also join the olpc-sf public mailing list if you'd like to volunteer making this event an important if not historic contribution to global collaborative learning, thanks! You may also write privately to Adam Holt if you prefer: holt @
