#Birds of a Feather?

A “birds of a feather” (BOF) session is an informal gathering to support community discussions. These are popular at many conferences and gatherings as they provide a venue for people or groups in the community to come together to discuss any topic of interest.

At Transform this year there are 2 BOF sessions:

  • Tuesday 08:00 UTC
  • Wednesday 20:00 UTC

#How do I participate?

Basically, just come along to the start of the session - if you have something you’d like to talk about, and you’d like to propose that as a topic just come prepared to explain your topic to others (1-2 mins) and with an idea of how to kick start or structure the discussion.

#Topics for discussion

Topics could be anything you want to chat about - a new project, a new event, a specific domain-like geothermal, depth conversion, visualization tools, favorite python snippets, datasets — and pretty much anything else.

At the beginning of the session, we’ll hear from everyone who wants to propose a topic and then organize the remaining time appropriately.

If you don’t have a topic to propose, just come along ready to join in the discussion and pick any subjects that interest you.

#Where?
