There is a large conference taking place in the city the same weekend with many hotels booked to capacity for that event which limited our available options. We decided to target Old City hotels first, since the hotel subcommittee felt there was better value there, as well as better options for going out the previous day/night for those present and interested. Following that, we would explore Center City hotels as secondary options, depending on what was found in Old City.
While we do have a Q&A session scheduled for the meetup, there will be lots of questions generated during the meetup itself to discuss. In an effort to maximize the experience, and get the most answers possible we would like to prepare answers for any questions you may already have. Please fill this form with any questions you want answered and we will do our best to provide answers. These will be sent to staff as well before the meetup.
Please check to see if your question has been asked already before submitting a new one.
Below is a list of topics suggested for presentation at the meetup and who has volunteered to present them. You can suggest additional topics or collaborate and present one of these topics by reaching out to the Presentation coordinator.
As the presentation preparation is finalized, any slides and/or other resources may be added to the list for other tofollow along or keep for reference later.
