Wanted: BSDCan Volunteers

Gossip, rumor, innuendo, and Twitter say that the BSDCan 2014 Call for Papers should be out in the next few days. (I trust the first three sources more than the last, but what the heck, let’s go for completeness.)

For the last ten years, Dan Langille has single-handedly coordinated BSDCan. In that time, BSDCan has become one of the critical events of the BSD community. It’s the largest, most consistently held gathering of BSD folks on this side of the planet.

Last year, Dan asked for additional help organizing, coordinating, and running BSDCan.

We had some great volunteers for the program committee, and several attendees offered their tender hides for assorted roles. A lot can change in a year, though, and not everyone in the world was in the room at the time, so I’m throwing this out to the general public.

We could use some additional help with the grunt work. It would be nice to have someone assigned to sit in each presentation room to make sure that the presenters have everything that they need and that everything goes reasonably well. One of the big time sinks is coordinating arrangements with speakers. Broken up between a few people it’s not a huge task, but it requires a certain attention to detail.

We’d also like to have someone local to the University of Ottawa to indoctrinate introduce more students into the BSD community.
