There was some discussion about conference software last year at CLS. I’m a maintainer of the Open Source COD Drupal distribution, which aims to empower community leaders to launch events quickly and easily.
A year has passed since our original discussion, and lots has been done to make a software package camps, events, and even major conferences can use. I’m curious if a) anyone else here has tried the new COD beta and b) what improvements could be made.
I’m hoping to host another conference organizing talk this year at CLS, and if there are developers or designers interested in helping improve the open source project, some of us will be sprinting on it at OSCON as well.
