> Hello all,
> I run an Open Source community event called OggCamp, it's one of the
> oldest and largest in the UK. Our 10th birthday is coming up in October
> and we'll be running the event on October 19th & 20th 2019 at the
> Pendulum Hotel conference centre in Manchester. There are also social
> events at the hotel on Friday Oct 18th and many people make a full
> weekend of it.
> What the hell is it though? Good question, I'm glad you asked. Many of
> the previous The quickest way to get up to speed is to watch the short
> video (5mins) on our home page - https://oggcamp.org
> It's a 2 day conference, barcamp, hackfest and general get together of
> geeks, makers, tinkerers and others. We have a scheduled track of
> speakers on the main stage with an opening keynote by Andy
> Stanford-Clark who'll tell us about how the Mosquitto project was
> actually created at the first OggCamp in 2009 and what's happening
> since. A full list of scheduled speakers and topics can be found here -
> There will also be 3 barcamp tracks where anyone can pitch a talk or
> session and run it. This always brings out interesting things we never
> would have planned and of course we'd love you to get involved.
> We have exhibition spaces available at the moment for companies,
> projects and community groups. It's all free (as in beer) so if you're
> interested drop me an email and we can talk about it.
> There will be a kids track with events for the family on Saturday, our
> Open Hardware Jam in which workshops and other things take place. This
> is run by the awesome folks behind Liverpool MakeFest, so if you enjoyed
> that event this should be right up your street!
> This year we are also partnering with FlawCon a security conference
> which will run as part of OggCamp on Sunday. So there's plenty to do and
> Tickets are available for the price of your choosing (yes including
> free, that's fine) at https://oggcamp.org/tickets/
> Ok this message is probably long enough so if you read this far I thank
> you. I welcome any questions or enquiries about OggCamp so feel free to
