How To Organize an Open Source Festival

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Conferences are over, long live Festivals! 

After a long reign of top-down and non collaborative conferences exclusively designed to gather experts to teach something they might not know, the new conference is built by people in a bottom-up, grassroots environment.

  • Lars Zimmermann: How to transform the city into an open learning space using a collaborative guerilla conferencing and city hacking process?
