The Microsoft Code Camp on Oct 15th will be having an Open Spaces Track. In my mind, that brings a lot of new people around to the idea of Open Spaces during conferences.
Open Spaces - Jess Chadwick - Room 105
An open discussion forum lasting the entire day. The format is deliberately fluid, with the general flow consisting of: participants shout out topics to discuss, vote on a topic, discuss it for 10 minutes (or more... or less), and then pick a new topic. Rinse and repeat for an entire day of lively and intriguing group conversation!
And do not forget the Philly Alt Net group, led by our own Brian Donahue, moving the discussion forward for Agile Practices in the dot Net world.
