Action Items

Posted on Twitter about Calagator code sprint:


We worked on this draft email to 2014 sponsors asking for repeat

We've been paid $3,828.24 by Eventbrite for registrations so far.


We have 24 paid registrations [20 at $175, 4 at $195], 3 volunteers, 10 community passes.

For comparison we've usually had about 20 "ridiculously early" registrations the year before the conference, plus ~5 at $175.


Hackathon, have we put anything out on social media? -- Melissa posted to Twitter this afternoon.

Wording so far: We're holding a hackathon on Dec. 13th to work on conference tasks. Join us!
