Community Leadership Summit 2015 Announced!

Hi All,

I am delighted to announce that the Community Leadership Summit 2015 will take place on the 18th and 19th July 2015 in Portland, Oregon. Full details as usual are at http://www.communityleadershipsummit.com/

As usual, the event is entirely free to attend, but by popular request last year we are now accepting donations to help offset the costs of the event. Go and register you ticket either free or with a donation by clicking here.

Fresh Ideas

This year I would love to have some discussions here on the forum about ways in which we can mix up the event, try some new things, and continue to refine it to serve the needs of community leaders and managers.

For those of you who have been to CLS previously I would love to hear your input on some of the following:

  • What organizational elements can we improve and refine?
  • What kind of content would you like to see? Just unconference, or more presentations, or other types of content?
  • What refinements can we make to the unconference piece - how can we make it easier to understand and more efficient?
  • Anything else! :smile:

Thanks everyone, and I can’t wait to see you all in July in Portland! :slight_smile:


Bug Report: http://www.communityleadershipsummit.com/schedule/

“FRIDAY 17th July 2015: Pre-CLS Gathering On Thursday night”

This is inconsistent. Should state Friday in both locations.

I was thinking about the mad idea of mixing FLOSS Community Metrics meeting with CLS… Just half day of brief presentations, lightning talks and an open discussion about open source software communities and metrics, just like the one we did last year in Puppet Labs offices or last January before FOSDEM…

What do you think?

Thanks to Jono Bacon for hosting the meeting in the Community Leadership Summit: http://flosscommunitymetrics.org/

If you are interested on giving a keynote talk, submit your proposal before June 15th here: http://goo.gl/forms/IKddQi14Fi

Registered people have also the chance to give 5 minutes lightning talks… Register here: http://goo.gl/forms/csJlvP8l83

I hope to see you there, sharing your experience with free/libre open source tools for measuring free/libre open source software development!!

Thank you very much and best regards!

Or you could also fix the problem by having gatherings both nights. This way, more beer.

This is my first CLS, so I’m not sure if Lightning Talks are already a part of the Summit or not, but I think they should be :blush:

I posted a new topic about it where people can chime in here: Lightning talks at CLS2015?

Looking Forward,
