The drummers of the Wocoas, an European tribe of WebObjects and Cocoa developers, are beating their drums again. Apple is getting serious about servers and big bad clusters and the Macintosh is about to celebrate its 20th anniversary ... guess what ... its time to dance!
As usual this event will try to be as unorganized as ever. Please do not expect a regular and boring trade show or conference but bring your drums and PowerBooks instead. This is a coming together and a sharing of knowledge and wisdom.
This time it will happen in the month of the hunger and our host will be cluster9 ... so we are gathering in the northern part of "Old Europe".
A detailed map of the place can be found here
If you intend to join us, please send a message with your name and preferred email-address to:
as soon as you can. Both are necessary for your name badge. And ...
After registration you will receive a confirmation mail and a second mail with the exact location details, shortly prior to the event. You will also be added to the email@example.com mailing list unless you explicitly state that you do not wish to be part of it.
We do not charge any fee for attending this Pow Wow but you will have to cover your own expenses.
You must register because we need to know how many Wocoa dancers will stomp our tipi. Otherwise we cannot guarantee to find a place big enough for all of us.
Please note ... while we should have a beamer and internet connection in place, please be aware that "sharing an interesting topic" should not be read as "giving a full blown hyper complicated sales presentation of your product and having the right to be depressed if nobody cares to listen". Our Pow Wows are organized chaos ... you have been warned!
This time we will limit the presentation time to 15 - 20 minutes each, so that enough time will remain for getting into privat conversation without missing any "demo dances".
Like during previous events we are again looking forward to welcome approximatly 50 motivated and creative Wocoa dancers.
For the first time in our Wocoa history we will broadcast the dances via QuickTime streaming, so that you can join us even from other place on this globe. If you want to tune in point your QuickTime player or webbrowser to one of the following streams (starting 14:00 CET):
The following list represents the known dance schedule. It will be updated continuously throughout the day.
This section contains a list of names and more planned topics. Those are the people that are willing to share some of their wisdom with the rest of us, but it is not yet clear if their talk will be broadcasted or when (the order represents the order in which we received the notice)
If you also want to demo something special or have knowledge that you are willing to share, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us about it, so that we can add you to this list.
Beat the drums
We hope that you send the necessary smoke signals to your friends and that you tell them about the Wocoa Pow Wow. The more dancers come - the better and louder our Pow Wow will be.
Share and Enjoy.
