By popular request! The now traditional BlueHackers BoF.
  
* '''When''': Tuesday night (when the PDNS is on). We'll be there by 6; food will probably start being edible between 6:30 and 7. (Unless you're a werewolf, of course.)
 
* '''Where''': [https://goo.gl/maps/i36iDMb8sNS2 Eastern Beach Reserve], just before the Beach House.
 
* '''What''': As is traditional, a barbecue! We'll be selling barbecued food and soft drinks.
 
** '''Food''': Barbequed food, with both carnivore and herbivore options, probably wrapped in a bread product. Possibly some sort of salad. We'll see. $5/head.
 
** '''Soft Drink''': Coke, Coke Zero, Solo, Lemonade. $1/can.
 
** '''Alcohol''': '''Strictly BYO only'''; selling alcohol is in contravention of various state and city laws, and we're too pretty for jail. Note that Geelong City Council laws do not permit alchol consumption after sunset — try to plan to be done about 8:40. (You can always move on elsewhere, of course.)
 
** All (any?) profits will benefit the conference charity: [https://givewhereyoulive.com.au/ Give Where You Live].

Revision as of 07:42, 3 February 2016

The familiar BlueHackers logo

By popular request! The now traditional BlueHackers BoF.


What

BlueHackers started late 2008... for anyone dealing (directly or indirectly) with depression, anxiety, bipolar, and related matters.

You may have seen a little blue BlueHackers sticker on a laptop, which quietly shows your support... it tells people they're not alone. It's simple, and it really makes a difference.

During the year, useful information and articles get posted on the BlueHackers.org website.

And at conferences, we often have a BoF. Some people may wish to hop up to the front and tell something, just for a few minutes. Others may just want to sit in the back and listen. We're not professionals. We're just fellow human beings. This is not therapy or anything like that. But it helps.


When

Wednesday afternoon in the tea break (3pm-3:40pm)

Where

For simplicity (and proximity to the tea & munchies) I suggest the key lecture theatre. Keep an eye on the main BoF page for the allocated room location.


Who

  • Arjen Lentz - catch him around the conference
  • you!
  • Thomas Sprinkmeier
  • others - you don't have to sign up here to come along, but it's an option.
