How to prepare an event

This is the list of tasks that (ideally) need to happen in order to prepare an event.

  1. Express interest to make an event: Ask the @event-organizers
  2. Find a venue: Confirm the availability and space
  3. Prepare a presentation/workshop/XXX
  4. Announce the event
    4a. On the website (see instructions)
    4b. On relevant groups and mailing lists
    4c. Personal invitations (by word of mouth/mouse)
