Gather together based on shared interests or identities and have casual conversations at a Birds of a Feather session!
Drupal GovCon have space for Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions on each day of the conference. Look for the BoF Board to see what sessions are planned, or to sign up to host a session.
What is a BoF?
A Birds of a Feather session (BoF for short) is an informal, fun gathering to discuss a shared interest or identity. Potential topics could include Drupal and Nonprofits, HAX, [Insert Module Name Here], or whatever's on your mind.
Look for the BoF Board to see what BoFs have been scheduled.
I have an idea! How do I sign up?
Look for the BoF Board. Find an empty slot, and write in your topic.
We are not offering pre-scheduling for BoFs this year.
Any tips on how to host a successful BoF?
- At the beginning of the BoF, introduce yourself and clearly explain the purpose of the BoF.
- Invite everyone attending to introduce themselves and say why they're interested in the topic.
- Facilitate discussion around the topic. Remember, this is NOT a formal presentation. As host, it is your job to give everyone an opportunity to be involved and to keep the discussion on-topic.
- At the end of the BoF, thank everyone for coming. If there are resources around the topic or a place to continue the discussion online or elsewhere, share that with the group.
