A grassroots bootcamp and workshop is being held from June 9-13, 2008 in Cambridge, MA. The default location is OLPC's headquarters in Kendall Square; if the number of attendees outgrows that, we'll find an alternate location.
The objective of the bootcamp is to help community members, many of whom have started their own trials and local user groups, to become effective grassroots group consultants - serving as resources to others who want to start grassroots groups, and helping them connect directly with OLPC developers and creators, and with children, educators, and schools in deployment areas.
There will be sessions for hacking (and learning how to hack) on different areas of the XO's hardware, development of software and learning materials, discussions of our satellite communities around volunteering, learning, and curation, and much more. Stay tuned.
See the list on the participants page.
Please leave your comments and suggestions on the talk page.
