Saturday: OLPC San Francisco Bay Area Summit 2009


Come out this Saturday to OLPC events in New Your City, or San Francisco. Here in the Bay Area, we'll have the OLPC San Francisco Bay Area Summit 2009 - a OLPC-SF community event designed to primarily foster collaboration amongst deployment teams in the SF Bay Area. We also hope that the event will help in improving the visibility of OLPC and Sugar to a wider group around this area.

The event is a "Birds of a Feather" type event but largely run as an unconference. Open to everyone. Drop by, and join a session. Bring a friend. Bring your family too!
