Community Day Las Vegas October 1st
Community Day Bangalore November 27th

Please add your BoF* session suggestion here. Currently we can accomodate about 16 sessions throughout the day. If there are more we will do a selection process.  

Update: Even though we have a lot of sessions already, we can a couple more, as Daniel will only do one session during the community day and the rest in the clubhosue. We will keep some open slots still for unconference style write in at the day of the event.

Please update which sessions you would like to participate in, as not all rooms are the same, so we know where to put the sessions. We will work with a couple of you to merge some of the sessions and will post the raster asap. Invitations to the hosts will go out soon too.

BOF Sessions (from Wikipedia):
Birds of a Feather: This idiom is a shortening of the proverb "Birds of a
feather flock together.", meaning that people (birds) of the same kind or
interest (of a common feather) enjoy spending time (flocking) together. This
proverb is believed to date back as far as Greek and Roman times, but has become
commonly used as jargon by various groups since the nineteenth century. In the
world of computing, BoF (Birds Of a Feather) can refer to: An informal
discussion group. Unlike Special Interest Groups or Working groups, BoFs
are informal and often formed in an ad-hoc manner. The acronym is used by
the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to denote initial meetings of members
interested in a particular issue. A BoF session, an informal meet-up at
conferences, where the attendees group together based on a shared interest and
carry out discussions without any pre-planned agenda.

    Is it worth merging the two sessions 6 & 11 ("Implementing cool technology - what is the business case?" and "How to keep your/your development team's technical skills up to date") - the list of attendees is similar, and I suspect we may cover similar ground in the sessions.
