Reach Out and Touch CommunityOne
By docteger on Apr 30, 2008
CommunityOne is this Monday, May 5 at Moscone Center in San Francisco. Aside from free registration, here are a few other things about CommunityOne. First is a list of General Session highlights:
Attendees can also choose from technical sessions led by leaders and committers from projects spanning the open source stack and powering the Internet. Participants include representatives of Apache, Eclipse, GlassFish, Grails, OpenSSO, MySQL, NetBeans, OpenSUSE, ODF Alliance, OpenID, OpenOffice, PostgreSQL, Python, Ruby, Ubuntu, and many others.
General sessions and many technical sessions will be live webcast through uStream. Feeds begin at 9:30am PT.
The analysts from RedMonk will be leading an unconference.
CommunityOne ends with a reception (read: BEER!) sponsored by OpenSolaris.
Sun StartUp Camp runs Sunday and Monday, May 4-5. "The Unconference for the Startup Community" kicks off the week with a keynote from Jonathan Schwartz, followed by expert panels and attendee led sessions. More than 500 entrepreneurs predominately from Web 2.0 type startups are expected to be in attendance.
Meetup/Mashup is also on Sunday, May 4. We're working with NetSquared to bring non-profits together with developers who can help them harness the power of the Internet for positive social change.
CommunityOne attendees get to attend opening day (Tuesday, May 6) of JavaOne for free with access to the Pavilion and General Sessions.
And in the spirit of community, here is a clip of Diana Ross singing Reach Out and Touch (Somebody's Hand) at Central Park in 1981. Some might remember the pouring rain that came down mid-concert. The free show was ultimately stopped that night and rescheduled for the next night. (I happened to have attended both nights - puff, puff.) After the second concert, there was very little community when scores of concert-goers roamed the streets looking for trouble. You won't find that at CommunityOne.
