I wanted to put out a feeler for a conference I am planning to happen sometime in June (as soon as I get a venue confirmed).
I am looking to do a conference in the style of TED in which speakers/presenters can showcase their work/idea/thought/project with a 15-20minute slot time. In addition, would be able to showcase their stuff in an exhibit hall for more of a deep dive.
I am also looking to see if there would be interest in a barcamp, if this was a multi-day event. Right now, I am thinking it would be 1-2 days depending on the submissions to present.
The goal of the event is to really make aware of other Government members of projects that highlight efficiency, collaboration, cost-effectiveness, and reusibility. The end customer would be high level decision makers in Federal and Local Government, as this will be somewhere inside the DC-Metro area.
If you are interested in helping out, presenting, or sharing ideas. I would love to hear from you.
