Lot of talk about this, it is time to take action and make this happen!
At this point I have secured an online venue so now we need everything else.
First things first though. This is going to happen during Hacktoberfest and hopefully we can get a hackathon together at the same time with @filipenevola blessings and help. For specific date, I was thinking of the week of 18~24 October, which should give us plenty of time to prepare and then still have a week afterwards to finish and merge any PRs. The question I have is which day(s) of the week would be best for you. Given the timezone differences I’m thinking we will go over 2 days which would also allow us the possibility for prizes from hackathon. So please tell me which days would be fine for you to attend:
Also I would like to use this opportunity to call upon anyone who would like to get involved to contact me. I’m looking for people to give talks, do showcases (packages, apps, companies) or do anything else awesome.
I’m also looking for people who would be interested in lending a helping hand with organizing the behind the scenes work or contributing with their skills. This could be things like moderating a panel session, monitoring hackathon contests, doing graphics, video editing (would be amazing to have some sort of a unified look on pre-recorded videos) and more.
Finally the last thing we can talk about here is the name for this conference. For right now I’m calling it
Meteor Observatory 2020, but I’m up for any better suggestions.
