CLS West is happening this Saturday 9 January at DeVry University in Daly City. I’ll be there all day, talking about catalyzing and community and stuff, then giving an Ignite talk at a closed-door event.
This is a follow-up to the successful CLS that occurred before the last OSCON in San Jose. The idea was born at the first CLS to have additional, regional, and smaller CLS events in between an international, annual event. Well, small was the idea originally, but it sounds as if CLS West has nearly as many people attending. In addition, the Ignite session on Saturday night at Google HQ gives a handful of us a chance to bring a message to the assembled attendees and a few guests. I’m planning to break out our new upstream project – an open content community book we’ve started and are ready to open for wider collaboration.
If you want to attend CLS West, there are still free tickets as of this writing. If I know you and you want to come to just the Ignite event, I’ll gladly hook you up as my guest. That, I believe, is first come, first served.
