Get Involved! Call for talks & workshops!

Get Involved!

SoOnCon 2013 planning is moving right along, so far we’ve got a number of talk submissions ranging from robotics to 3D printing to podcasting to camera hacking. If you want to do a talk on anything related to making or hackerspaces in general, please fill out the Get Involved form and we’ll schedule you in! Submission deadline is October 20th.

Lightning talks at SoOnCon!

We’re also announcing a lighting-talk round for the main event! If you don’t want to do a long talk at SoOnCon itself, consider a 5-minute one! We’ve added it as an option to the Get Involved form and will do the round of lightning talks as a scheduled event.

Spread the Word!

If you know someone who would be interested in attending SoOnCon, let them know! We will have an official poster to download and print shortly. Tickets will also be going on sale soon!

For event updates, follow us on Twitter at @SoOnCon or on Facebook. Hope to see you there!

Announcing SoOnCon 2013

Hey folks, it’s that time of the year again for yet another edition of the Southern Ontario Makers & Hackerspace Conference. This year, Kwartzlab Makerspace is taking the reins for the event so it will be happening in Kitchener, Ontario.

The day before the conference, Kwartzlab will be having a BBQ/Meet & Greet at their space on Friday November 1st from 7:30pm to 2:00am. Lightning Talks will accompany the fine foodstuffs and drink.

The main conference is scheduled for November 2nd, 2013 from 9:00am to 5:00pm. We’re still working on a location, we’ll keep you posted.

Finally, in grand SoOnCon tradition, we scheduled the event to coincide with an all-night arts festival that’s also happening in town on the same day. NIGHT\SHIFT is a free downtown arts exhibition that will run from 9:00pm to 3:00am the next day.

Tickets will be on sale shortly, and we’re looking for people who’d love to do a SoOnCon talk, run a workshop or even just do a short lightning talk during the Kwartzlab BBQ. If you are interested, please check out this page on Getting Involved.

Hope to see you there, it’ll be good times indeed. Cheers!
