Open Source Comes to Campus/Potential Locations

Criteria for Selecting Locations[edit]

  • How many attendees are we likely to get? As a general heuristic, if the CS program is more than 100 people, we're likely to get enough people for a good event.
  • Is there a good host organization - an ACM, Women in CS group - that can follow up on the workshop with project nights or other events to keep people involved?
  • Is it easy for us to get to? Can we get funding to pay for our travel?
  • Is there a pool of local volunteers - for instance, from local user groups, or from the CS program - that can help mentor at the event?

Staff date (un)availability[edit]

Our Google calendar should have the most up to date schedule.
