One of the things that goes on while we’re in town for TechDays are “extra” events that are generally open for all to attend free of charge. I mean we have all these speakers from all sorts of backgrounds, passions and technology expertise focus areas – why not “share the love” with local community events.

Cloud Camps are usually the day before – great format – something we started last year and continued this year.

Make Web Not War event is the evening of the first day – lots of local stories from the community and cool stuff going on in the startup world.

During breakfasts and lunches – we partnered with Can WIT – Women In Technology to have roundtables and conversations.  You never know who might show up – including MaryJo Foley.

We kicked off our west coast swing of a new format for IT / Infrastructure professionals modeled off of the *Camp format. IT Camp was well attended and had plenty of demos and fun stuff going on – including me trying to co-build a cluster from scratch in 15 minutes.

It can make your days a little long – being at the venue from 7 am until 9 or so at night – but honestly – these extra events are the ones I find myself having a lot of fun both Attending AND helping organize/put on.

The Cluster was eventually completed – but it took a little longer then expected.

All these events / activities are going on in Montreal – sign up and register – they are free to attend.
