The Code4Lib BC chapter is hosting another unconference in Vancouver this December -- but we're looking for a new home for 2017! Would you be interested in hosting?

Code4Lib BC provides a venue for people in library and allied fields to get together to collaborate, innovate, learn, and share. Our annual unconference provides opportunities to present lightning talks on projects you're currently working on or wondering about, combined with breakout sessions that allow participants to get their unconference on. The atmosphere is friendly, open, collaborative, and inclusive. Since it's an unconference, organizers fade into the background and participants take ownership of the agenda by stepping forward to lead breakouts, propose topics, and generate participation. You can read more about Code4Lib BC's past events on our wiki [1], as well as more about the Code4Lib community [2].


Code4Lib BC aims to create connections and professional development opportunities for folks from British Columbia and surrounding areas. We've been hosting events in Vancouver since 2013, but we can't create province-wide connections in Vancouver alone. We're looking for a group or organization (formal or informal) to consider bringing Code4Lib BC outside of its Vancouver roots, and on the road to other parts of BC. Could this be you?

The current organizing committee is comprised of special, academic, and public library librarians and technicians with no specific hosting institution. We would be delighted to discuss logistics and other considerations with any individuals or groups who are interested in hosting Code4Lib BC 2017.

Interested? Shoot us an email ( and tell us your thoughts!

Meanwhile, don't forget that we'll be hosting another unconference in Vancouver on December 1 and 2. Registration will be opening soon -- keep an eye out for details.
