@davidedmundson : can you bring a monitor? since you're driving down that ought to fit. Although a different task says "giant monitor a must" I don't think we should do that last-minute here. Besides, the number of expected attendees is much lower than ELCE, so cost is a thing.

I will bring a 24" monitor.

Public blog posts about the event:

Internal notes about the event:

  • basically same talking points as at ELCE; we went over them somewhat the evening before the event, and that was more than enough.
  • tablecloth worked really well.
  • when doing booth setup, good idea to keep a checklist of how you want to run things. I forgot to play the videos entirely.
  • event was fairly small, but it was good for our sponsor relations to be there.

New business cards would be a plus.
