There is an organizing group evaluating what the level of interest would be in a 3-day Fabrik Conference to be held initially in Keystone Resort in the Rocky Mountains near Denver Colorado some time in early November 2013.
The purpose is to get Fabrik power users together with each other and with Rob and Hugh to exchange experiences about using Fabrik for real-world apps. There would be one optional day for 'Fabrik 101' where Fabrik experts would teach technically-oriented noob's how to develop apps in Fabrik followed by 2 days of a main tent session, lots of workshops, presentations and birds of a feather sessions and a group dinner similar to the format of most tech conferences.
Participants would be responsible for getting there and for their lodging while there which will be $99-$199/nt since it's off-season in a ski resort (however there will be early skiing available at nearby Arapahoe Basin!). In addition, to cover costs of the conference, there would be a $250/person charge for optional pre-conference day and $500/person cost for attending the 2 day man conference (or $400/person if you are contributing by speaking on any of the 3 days). We would need about 30 attendees minimum to put the conference on with the objective of breaking even. If there is more interest, the price may be able to be slightly lowered.
