PirateCon 2017 will be Saturday, April 29th in Greater Boston. It will start at 10am and end at 6pm. Conference details and update are at the 2017 PirateCon page.
Besides holding talks on a variety of topics, we will elect our Pirate Council and three Arbitrators. Submit your nomination by April 28th.
Last year we recorded the conference and streamed audio from it. This year we are working on streaming audio and video, so if you cannot make it in person, you can still check it out. We would appreciate any donation you can give to the streaming fund.
Speak your Mind
If you are interested in presenting or participating in a panel at our conference, sign up. We have six hour-long sessions available. Please sign up by March 26th.
Help us Find a Location
Finally, we are looking for locations and would like to chose it at our March 7th IRC meeting. We are working on a couple of places, but would appreciate suggestions for others.
Our minimum requirement is a space than can seat 100 people with fast wifi/ethernet that is near public transit.
Ideally, we would like a space near public transit with a 100-200 seat auditorium, two to four conference rooms, a place for registration and fast wifi/ethernet. Ample parking in the area is a plus.
If you know of any such places (or variations there of) that won’t bust our budget, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
