Would anyone here be interested in a remote Clojure conference? What time of year would you prefer it? Any special requests or differences from regularly scheduled conferences you’d like to see?
I would be interested. It might be easier to have "beginner" tracks. I'm also interested in learning more about working well with editors and REPLs, structuring applications, and deployment.
I'd be curious to know how the experience is different from just.. watching the talk videos on youtube.
@ivanreese: Yeah, I’m not sure about that. It seems like you’d need some added value somehow. I was thinking live interaction of some kind but people could get that just in a Slack/IRC chat while the conf was on anyway.
I think the added value is.. it would foster some additional talk-like presentations that otherwise might not happen, and get people just that much more involved and active in the community.
Perhaps one of those sock puppet debugging chat bots for Clojure, like: https://sites.google.com/site/codeconsultantplugin/
1. They had a chat system online during the talks. I didn’t like it. There were lots of sexist and anti-semitic comments on it.
2. There was a voting mechanism for questions. So you could add a question and ppl would vote on them, The questions with the most vote were the ones that got asked at the end of a presentation.
Now this posed a couple problems, but the main one was that by day 2, the thing was hacked.
Which brings me back to point 1: who the hell has the time to hack instead of pay attention to a talk?
So, I would suggest: 1. Charging to weed out some bad eggs. Or you can only ask a question if you donate money to a Non-Profit organization.
So, my main pet peeve with chat during a talk, is that what are you doing chatting during a talk? If we were in a
real conf it would be totally rude.
but if it needs to happen, then yes, here would be fine, but it would be great to also have it moderated and a CoC
I remember lively chats during the http://X.org talks on FOSDEM which greatly enriched the experience (links to the related code/documentation, discussion of related issues etc)
yeah, it was kind of sad to see the chat on that virtual conference, a lot of the chatter was not even related to the presentation at times.
There is chat during real confs (everyone has a phone, many people have a laptop, and everyone is tweeting the whole time), and it's opt in.
Yeah.. I've never seen that sort of nonsense in the CLJ community. I'd be surprised if a CLJ-focussed conf had the same problem.
the barrier to entry is lower, which is good, so there will be lots of attendees that are not familiar with the culture in the CLJ community
We'll just make it clear (as we always do) that there's no tolerance for hostility.
maybe, what was sad about hack summit, imo, was that there was no moderation, so no one was called out on their bs
Hopefully, if the CLJ remote conf chat has a reasonable proportion of people already steeped in the community..
also, it would be wise to have a small fee, and not make it totally free. Organizing a conf, even if remote, takes lots of work and effort.
@avey_q: Yes; Any time of year; If there were something special that could be done to take advantage of the "remote" nature of the conf, that'd be really neat, but that's rather open-ended and likely orthogonal to putting on a solidly "good" remote conf.
One of the big benefits of a regular conf is the networking / fun social events. I wonder what could be done to capture that spirit in a remote conf.
(Trying to think of ways to make a remote conf experience greater than just... watching Conj videos and chatting with people on Clojurians)
What I like most about conferences is the hallway track - I generally only end up seeing about half the talks.
Just throwing it out there: for some talks, local Meetup groups could get together to watch/discuss
