This year, Alt.NET Houston will be hosting it’s 2nd Open Spaces Conference. Last years was such a success that many wanted us to do it again.
The What and When
This year the conference will be held from Friday, April 30th – Sunday, May 2nd. We’re adding Friday (starting at noon) for workshops. We will have 2 concurrent 4 hour workshops that you can attend if you like. The topic for these workshops is still to be determined but will be announced closer to the time of the conference.
Friday evening we will hold the planning session, where we will all gather and suggest topics that we either want to present/convene, or that we’d like to hear about. This is an important part of the event. Your satisfaction with the conference is completely in your hands. If you want to suggest a session, it’s important that you are there Friday evening.
The conference will be held at the Houston Microsoft office, located on the west side of town. You can find a map here.
This year the price of admission is $20. This is being done for 2 reasons. First and foremost, it gives us some money to supply food, snacks, and beverages. Secondly, it ensures that people will be less likely to sign up and not attend. We are making an exception for students though, so if you are a college student interested in attending, please contact Ben Scheirman before registering.
