== 'No pressure' policy ==
 
  
The Astronomy Miniconf is a low-pressure event, and we strongly encourage anyone who has an idea for an astronomy-related talk to submit a proposal even if you’ve never presented at a conference before. Please share this CfP with anyone you know who may otherwise not consider submitting a proposal.

== Commitment to Diversity ==
+
=== Tutorial Outline ===
  
We are especially keen to present a diverse range of experiences and voices, and actively encourage women and people from other groups that are frequently under-represented at tech events to submit a proposal. Please share this CfP with anyone you know who may fit with this objective.
+
''Work in progress.''
  
== Suggested Presentation Topics ==
+
This is a rough outline of what we'll cover during the session on Thursday.
  
Any topic which is related to both astronomy and open source technologies is considered on-topic for the Astronomy Miniconf.
+
[[Tutorials/d8otb/outline]]
  
Some ideas include:
+
|}
  
* Showcasing your backyard astronomy pictures captured or processed with open source tools
+
----
* A brief demonstration of a cool or interesting astronomy application that runs on Linux
+
* Sharing info about your life as a sysadmin managing a high-performance computing cluster in an astronomical research facility
+
* A tutorial on post-processing of astronomy photos using open source tools
+
* Sharing your work on creating simulations of galaxy formation
+
* Anything interesting, cool, or unusual related to astronomy and open source
+
  
In addition to presentations from LCA2015 delegates, we are working to source a small number of presentations from New Zealand-based professional astronomers to discuss the open source aspects of their work.
+
=== Installing Drupal ===
  
== Presentation Format ==
+
'''Temporary web based training environments will be available for the tutorial.'''  Let's hope the network is up to it. :-)
  
Presentations will be a mix of 20 minute and 45 minute time slots, with a ‘lightning talks’ session with multiple 5-10 minute mini-presentations. Lightning talks do not require a proposal, you can just present on the day (this is a very low-pressure way to ease yourself into presenting, so please have a think in advance about what you’d like to present).
+
Note: We won't be installing Drupal during the session, so if you want to work on a local dev version on your laptop, you might want to do that in advance.  
  
== Need some help? ==
+

If you have an idea (or the beginning of an idea) for a presentation for the Astronomy Miniconf, we’d be very happy to talk it through with you to help you develop it further. Email Jessica Smith at [mailto:jessica@itgrrl.com?Subject=Help%20with%20LCA2015%20Astronomy%20Miniconf%20submission jessica@itgrrl.com] or ping her at [https://twitter.com/itgrrl @itgrrl] on Twitter to start the conversation.
+
====Command Line====
  
== Code of Conduct ==
+
https://www.drupal.org/documentation/install/developers#drush
  
Anyone presenting at the Astronomy Miniconf is bound by the same Code of Conduct as presenters and conference attendees of the main conference. The full LCA2015 Code of Conduct is at http://linux.conf.au/cor/code_of_conduct
+
'''Web based training environments will be available.'''  Let's hope the network is up to it. :-)
  
To help ensure that presentations comply with the Code of Conduct, we require presenters to submit a copy of their presentation/slide deck for review by Monday 5th January, 2015 (one week prior to the start of LCA).

== Presenter Responsibilities ==
+

+
Ready? Use the Discussion page to ask questions or make suggestions.
Presenters at the Astronomy Miniconf must be registered attendees of the main LCA2015 conference. Presenters are responsible for their own conference registration, travel, and accommodation costs. The LCA2015 committee has made available a small number of miniconf-only passes that we will be using to enable professional astronomers to present who would not otherwise be able to attend.

Drupal 8 brings radical evolution to one of the world's top open source web content management systems.

https://www.drupal.org/drupal-8.0

This tutorial will give you hands on experience with the newest version of Drupal. If you haven't had a look for a while, now is the time to revisit the drupalverse.

We will build a website from scratch and learn how to participate in one of the open source world's largest communities.

We will attempt to build a basic, responsive website from scratch in one short afternoon.

For best results, you should be prepared with an idea or three of the kind of website you want to build. Bring some content, images, or pick a favourite Lorem Ipsum generator and some sample piccies from OpenClipart.org.
