From Code4Lib
Jump to: navigation, search
We're in the last few days before the conference begins, and for a good number of you, 
this will be your first code4lib. Here is some information to help you navigate through 
the conference craziness next week:

- Social Activities<insert link to SA page>: There's a lot going on outside of the sessions, 
and this page has information about various gatherings, events, meals, etc. One activity I 
want to highlight is the Newcomer dinner<insert link to SA page> that will be on 
<insert date of dinner>. There are still a lot of great restaurants left on the list, and this 
is your chance to meet folks you might otherwise not get a chance to talk to at the conference. 
Read the guidelines on the wiki, and pick your restaurant.

(Public service announcement: for those of you who have signed up for the dinner already, make 
sure that there's a designated leader for organizing reservations and people herding.)

- Hospitality Suite: For some of the events listed on the Social Activities page, you will see 
the Hospitality Suite listed as a location. This is a place where attendees usually hang out outside 
of sessions (or taking a break from sessions). The location of the Suite is usually announced 
through various means, including the wiki, IRC and Twitter.

- IRC/Twitter/etc.: Speaking of those channels, you'll find many folks using the #c4lXX hashtag 
for conference related stuff. The IRC channel<insert link to IRC page> is #code4lib, and there 
will be volunteers at the conference who would be more than happy to help you with IRC.

- For my last item, give the following a read:<insert links to appropriate pages>

If you have a question, ask! I'll be bringing in some badge ribbons for everyone to self-identify 
themselves as first timers and "old timers" as well, if you're into classification and stuff. ;-)
