Gathering of Sleet

25d_sleetAfter a wonderfully democratic Doodle, distributed through our Twitter, Facebook, and IRC channels, the community has decided to have another, informal, ‘Gathering of Sleet’ (aka Gathering of Lightning Event) squeezed into the year at very short notice.

This Sunday! (Thanks for that guys… :P)

Anyway, standard Gathering of Lightning rules apply:

  • Flying pigs after 7 minutes
  • No Presentation tools (Prezi, Powerpoint, Keynote, Beamer, etc)
  • Arbitrary order or presenters
  • Heckling¬†Encouraged

(Unconfirmed) Presentations offered by the community over the thought process of this so far are:

  • Chrome OS: Are you ready to live in the cloud?
  • Ruby/Javascript/Io/Twillo/Erlang/Go/Linguistics (One person offered these… brave lad)
  • Parallelism in Web Programming
  • Windows 8/Windows Mobile App Certification processes / pains
  • Dr Strangethings, or How I learned to stop worrying and love Rapid Prototyping
  • Probably more!

Since it’s short notice, we’ve got no sponsor for this one, but we’ll grab a few crates to drink and people are, as always, free to BYO Food/Drink.


One reply on “Gathering of Sleet”

Dagnammit, I’ve got gig tickets that evening. Still haven’t made it to GOL yet but want to support, as it’s exactly the kind of event I think more organisations should encourage. It pulls disparate themes and ideas together in one room. Hope it goes well.
