Phil, what was that Robotics meetup on Saturdays you had mentioned in the Friday PyYYC meetup? Looking for some ideas to get my 7 years old hooked up on science and technology and that sounds like a potentially great idea, since he just loves building things :-)
Pixels and Pints is a great way to relax after punching the clock, but sometimes a community needs something more than chit-chat. Enter Pixel Camp. Our goal is to use a mix of emergent event formats (unconferences, unpanels, open space technology, etc) to teach, create and build a true practice-oriented technology and digital arts community in Calgary.
Why we are different? We're open source. You will help us build this community and share in the benefits. In fact, participation is required. Expect to roll up your sleeves and earn your share.
You can begin by joining the group and taking part in the discussion. There are a lot questions and hopefully you can offer some answers.
The first question we ask you: will you participate?
