Announcements and instructions from the organizers about THATCamp logistics.

It’s time to begin proposing sessions!

Because THATCamp CNY 2019 is an unconference, planning the content of the conference falls to all of us.

You are invited to use the THATCamp 2019 site to propose sessions in the categories of Talk / Make / Teach / Play: In a Talk session proposal, you offer to lead a group discussion on a topic or question of interest to you. In a Make session proposal, you offer to lead a small group in a hands-on collaborative working session with the aim of producing a draft document or piece of software. In a Teach session, you offer to teach a skill, either a “hard” skill or a “soft” skill. In a Play session, anything goes — you suggest literally playing a game, or playing around as a group with one or more technologies, or just doing something fun or original.

The preliminary schedule for the day accounts for sessions of 45 minutes to an hour, but we can accommodate longer sessions if the topic warrants.

In order to post a proposal you need to register for the event (which is free).

More details about the proposal process can be found on the propose page. If you run into any problems, send THATCamp organizer Patrick Williams () an email for help.


Registration is now open for THATCamp CNY 2019

We are pleased to open registration for THATCamp CNY 2019, which will take place at Bird Library on Friday, October 25, 2019. Registration and attendance for this day-long event are FREE. Fill out our registration form here, and if you have any questions, please contact Patrick Williams (). Once you register you will receive a confirmation message from this WordPress site.

Because THATCamp is an unconference, there isn’t a schedule in advance–we will quickly create a schedule for the day based on participants’ interests the morning of the event. For more information on what the event will be like, check out THATCamp 101.

Once you have registered, you can propose a session that you’d like to lead. Collaborative proposals are encouraged. For more information about how to propose, take a look at the propose page. You may propose as early as you like. We will send reminders as the event draws nearer.
