January 23 – 25, 2015-Sparklecon 2015

Now you are in the loop

As of today we are deprecating this wordpress site for our wiki – http://www.sparklecon.org/wiki  for easier information finding and updates. Please check the wiki for talk, contest, and entertainment schedules. See you at Sparklecon!

We are announcing a call for talks and papers for Sparklecon 2.0. This will be the second iteration of the successful “hit-and-run” format hacker conference we pulled off last year.

It will be running on a Friday-Monday schedule. There will be food and entertainment Friday and Saturday nights, contests and a full schedule of 10-minute lightning talks, alternating with 30-60 minute hands-on sessions and presentations.

We’re also looking for entertainment on Saturday night. We will have a stage available and can work with you on getting set up.

But we are already excited that we get to enjoy chip-tunes from Timon Marmex  with visuals by Vismancienne (aka Leah Oakes, aka Professor Oakes), and craque (Matt is bringing modular synth goodness).

Dan Cragg of Insteon (http://www.insteon.com) has promised to bring by some fun toys to play with, too.

Please e-mail [email protected]  if you are interested in presenting. There will be open slots reserved for walk-ups, but it would be great to get you on the schedule ASAP.
