For everyone attending the Hack-A-Way, a few reminders and links: The agenda page can be found below. We will take some time Monday to talk about scheduling these topics so that remote participants can plan to be involved. Discussions that are of broad interest will be shared via the community Youtube Live channel.
https://wiki.evergreen-ils.org/doku.php?id=hack-a-way:hack-a-way-2018-agenda General information about the facility and this year's event can be found here: https://wiki.evergreen-ils.org/doku.php?id=hack-a-way:hack-a-way-2018 The above wiki page includes links to parking maps, lists of nearby eateries for the evenings as well as policies. We are expected in the space between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm each day though we can arrive and leave a bit on either side of those hours. Lunches, breakfast, coffee and water (as well as the space) is being supplied by Equinox Open Library Initiative so thanks to Equinox. Equinox has tied Indiana with hosting us twice though it will be short lived as Indiana is already scheduled to host us again next year and take the lead again. Everyone attending should have a working knowledge of two specific policies. First, the photography policy: https://evergreen-ils.org/conference/photography-policy/ We will have colored lanyards available at the event. Please keep in mind that if you consent to have your photo taken it may be used in community communications (Twitter posts for example). Also be mindful of the camera when we setup the Youtube live feeds. We will endeavor to keep anyone out of the feed who does not which to be on it but people may have to move seating in some situations. Speaking of that, if you want to subscribe to the Evergreen community Youtube channel you can do so here: https://www.youtube.com/c/EvergreenLibrarySystem Secondly, the community behavioral policy: https://evergreen-ils.org/code-of-conduct/ Please keep in mind that the code of conduct is not meant to be comprehensive. This particular event is held in close quarters so that developers can work closely together. So, please be considerate of each other, keep voices down, no audible music, keep phone ringers muted or quiet, etc.... Additionally, while everyone can discuss whatever they want in the course of the Hack-A-Way please do recognize that we come from diverse backgrounds and viewpoints so some topics (such as politics) are probably best to avoid. The behavioral policy says that if you have problems you need addressed to contact staff. If something does happen please don't hesitate to contact either myself, Rogan Hamby, or Andrea Buntz Neiman. We will have moire detailed contact information at the event for participants. That's it! Safe travels and I look forward to seeing everyone in ATL.
