I like the event page, @jan!
The text is good and I believe we have most of the key info on there. Maybe add that people need to bring there laptops? Just to focus a bit more that this is a hands on event.
I know the schedule is probably not fixed in any way yet as we don’t have a host. But if we want to “open” at 9 am, I would not start with the intro before around 9:30. Usually a lot of people run late and then the intro will be interupted a lot or missed by many people.
So I would use the first half hour as a buffer. People can come in, chat, get to know the space etc.
When I read about the schedule I also wondered if we should do a few optional talks/workshops during the day? Could be bar camp style, where we allow people to propose topics and if there is enough interest + someone who volunteers to give the talk, we have it. This could allow us to tailor the content to the needs & interests of the attendees.
That would of course only work if we have a enough room.
Or maybe we can add 1-2 questions to the signup form and ask what they would like to know about open source contributions and why they have not contributed yet. We can then try to answer all the frequent questions in the intro.
