I’m really pleased to announce that there is going to be an Alt.Net conference in Israel, namely Alt.Net.Israel.
So what is Alt.Net? If you haven’t heard of Alt.Net yet, read David Laribee’s post to better understand the term - What’s ALT.NET
Details: The conference will be held on Thursday 7th and Friday 8st August 2008, at the SQLink offices in Ramat Gan, and is being organised by Roy Osherove, Oren Eini (a.k.a Ayende), and myself.
Thursday 7th, at 18:30-20:30: planning meeting, following a walk to a nearby pub or coffee shop to socialise.
Friday 8th, at 09:30-16:30: sessions.
We have chosen a summer Friday and a super accessible location on purpose, to give the religious people a chance to attend and still make it on time home for Sabbath.
Agenda: That is really up to the people who attend. We will be following an open spaces format, similar to the other alt.net conferences in the UK, USA and Canada, where the agenda is decided by the conference participants. Anyone can lead sessions on particular topics of interest, participate as an attendee or just hang around and chat with interesting people.
Please note that registration is not open yet! I will blog more when we have information on this, hopefully it will open shortly. I can say that the conference will be free of charge.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. I’m really looking forward to this, should be a great event!
A big thank you to our sponsors:
See you there :)
P.S, also a big thankyou to Ben Hall, of the alt.net UK organisers, which is partly responsible for my enthusiasm for alt.net conferences, and I’ve also used his previous announcement as a template for this one …
