OpenSSO Community Day - NYC - March 17 2009

OpenSSO Community Day Banner

Eduardo mentioned CommunityOne back in December, when he announced the call for papers. CommunityOne East, to be held at the Marriott Marquis at Times Square, New York City, on March 18-19, is fast approaching now, and I'm pleased to announce that, on the day before CommunityOne East, Tuesday 17th March 2009, the OpenSSO Community will be gathering just a couple of miles down Broadway at New York University's Kimmel Center for the very first OpenSSO Community Day.

This is a unique opportunity for OpenSSO contributors, deployers and users to get together for a whole day of presentations and discussion in an 'unconference' format - the only fixed agenda item right now is to figure out the agenda. We're collecting ideas over the next few weeks at the OpenSSO wiki; if you're thinking of attending, do go there, take a look, and add any topics you want to speak on or hear about. Admission is free, with breakfast and lunch provided, and Daniel says he'll even bankroll the first round in the pub afterward .

So, if you're heading to New York City for CommunityOne, why not go early for a day (and possibly night!) of OpenSSO. If you're based in NYC, well, you have no excuse, go sign up, right now!
