AdaCamp Allies Track expanded to a full day

AdaCamp logoBy popular request, we have expanded the allies track at AdaCamp San Francisco to a full day on Saturday, June 8, 2013. The allies track is for people of any gender who are eager to support women in open tech/culture. The support of allies is a vital part of the movement to make open technology and culture more welcoming to women and people of all genders.

The allies track schedule for Saturday, June 8, will be (ignoring break time):

9:30am – 10am Introduction
10am – 12pm Allies Workshop (led by Valerie Aurora)
12pm – 1pm Lunch with AdaCamp main track attendees
1pm – 5pm Unconference sessions

The unconference sessions will be proposed and chosen by the allies track attendees. Attendees of the main track are welcome to join the allies track at any time.

The registration fee for the allies track varies depending on financial need, from free to $100 (which covers the full per-person cost of running the allies track). You can apply to attend either track here. We are unfortunately unlikely to be able to award travel grants to allies track attendees, due to financial constraints.

The allies track on Saturday will be a fun, educational, and rewarding experience for people who want to learn more about supporting women in open tech/culture. We encourage you to apply today!

We thank our gold level sponsors Mozilla and Automattic; and our silver level sponsors Google Site Reliability Engineering, Linux Foundation, Red Hat, and Intel; for their support of AdaCamp San Francisco.
