While I’m hesitant to post details about the event too soon (the hype machine works in mysterious ways), I also know that we’ve got a lot of work ahead of us to make WineCamp 2006 a fabulous success. So in the interest of openness and making this the best event possible, I’ve posted all the current details to the Bar Camp wiki.
In addition to hosting this event at a real vineyard, we’re going to be doing something really cool and important for open source. The WineCamp Fundraiser aims to bring open source practices and principles to underprivileged students by matching up mentors with various after-school projects and programs. Not a lot of concrete details yet since this is a brand new effort (being undertaken by Andrew Ferriere, the owner of the vineyard), but I’ve got a lot of ideas and contacts for this, and am very eager to hear about ideas, projects suggestions and and people that can help make this part of the event especially successful and impactful.
