Hi everyone,

We're hoping to offer a U-Camp at the JA-SIG BarCamp this winter. Please 
  RSVP if you're thinking of attending. I will be there along with 
several other members of the UToronto Fluid team.

JASIG Community,

JASIG has always been about people coming together to share and learn in 
an open environment, and this is what a BarCamp is all about. As 
demonstrated by the success of the Summer 2007 Conference mini BarCamp, 
the "unconference" format fits very well with our community values and 
goals. This year the JASIG Winter Conference will be held as a BarCamp 
instead of the traditional conference format. This event will provide 
opportunities to collaborate on all JASIG community initiatives.  There 
will not be a separate Winter Conference or Fall uPortal Developer Meeting.

What happens at BarCamp?
- stakeholders create project road maps
- developers discuss, design, and develop
- implementers share tips, strategies
- designers discuss techniques
- members chart out strategic direction

We are in the very early stages of organizing this new exciting event 
and need your help.

1) Please RSVP
Registration fees will be kept as low as possible and potentially zero. 
If you think you might attend please RSVP. This will help us ensure we 
have adequate meeting space and food.

2) When is the best time for the BarCamp?
There are always a number of events happening throughout the year. 
Please help us determine the best time to have the BarCamp.

3) Potential Hosts
We are looking for JASIG Member institutions to volunteer as potential 
sites for the BarCamp. If you are interested in hosting the BarCamp at 
your institution please let me know.

Best Regards,
Bill Thompson
