How to organize all the program ideas? 

  1. Peter will create a github repository for conference planning. (we will move into hydra later if needed)
  2. Peter will create an issue for each idea. Apply labels to issues corresponding to possible groupings or theme
    1. Audience
    2. Format
    3. grouping / theme
  3. Matt will set up a waffle board once we have a repo, will also try setting up


  • Re: themes, Peter notes that after a lot of activity in many directions the community has been pulling back together and this year's connect will be an opportunity to summarize that movement.
  • We must assign Esme to something!


Next steps:

  • We'll work through program ideas before deciding on welcomes / keynotes, other.
  • Next call will be about revising groupings and orienting ourselves to the full slate of ideas.
  • Call after next will be about deciding the essential structure.
  • No labels
