RSVP for the Meetup & "Un-Conference" in Raleigh, NC, April 24, 2013!

Event has ended



Thanks to Mason Sanders & RedHat for hosting our first Meetup and "Unconference" in North Carolina!!  We've started brainstorming some ideas that would make for some good discussion. But really, we'd like to make this a fun event that's driven by you, so jump in and suggest a topic. Here's some of what we've got so far.


Who Should Attend

The event is open to everyone and we're looking to get a diverse group of people to attend. Several of the sessions will be geared towards the following:

  • Community Managers
  • Enterprise Developers
  • Jive Admins

Of course, it's an "Un-Conference" so feel free to propose your own idea!



Because we suspect people may need to drive or come in to the area, we are targeting an afternoon start, and will run the event on April 24, from 4:00 - 8:00pm (or maybe later). Here's the rough breakdown of time.

:30    Welcome, Introductions & Networking

:30     Jive Roadmap (Mark Weitzel)

:30   "Show & Tell" Depending on the number of people, we'll start with each group having 10 minutes or so to talk about how they use Jive.

:120    "Unconference" discussions*
