To Do

Organizers, feel free to take these tasks and either quickly do them, or claim them (to work on them) and your name in front of the item.

  • All the usual subpage creations
  • plan keynotes and overall schedule
  • prepare slides if giving any part of the keynotes
  • assemble name badges before the event
  • . . .

Graphics / Design

This year we will have hanging name badges, and we have the opportunity to put inserts inside the badges as well.

Cheat Sheets

Shane Becker I'm down to design these. Especially, if someone wants to help with the writing part.


Each cheat sheet should fit on a two-sided 4x6" piece of paper. They will be printed in black and white to keep costs down, unless there is a strong reason they should be printed in color.

Alternative: Single 8x11" sheet, folds into a booklet.

For microformats we made fold-up booklets from normal 8x11 paper that progressively revealed the most immediately/commonly/intro useful stuff first as you flipped through it and unfolded it. I think it had 16 individual "pages", double-sided.

Could we do attachment with a corner hole-punch like OSBridge nametags, all you need is a hole-punch that can punch through 16 layers of paper.

The nice thing about an 8x11 form factor (that you can fold up) is that it empowers people to print more for their friends.


Please create cheat sheets in HTML or SVG, to allow the greatest flexibility of maintaining them in the future.
