It is a Code4Lib tradition to welcome those who are new to the conference by organizing dinner groups on the night before the general conference begins. Sign-up is organized by the Social Activities Committee on the wiki, and we try to mix a few newcomers with a few veterans who can offer an informal introduction to the conference. Great for making new friends!
Play games? Have some homemade (or “homemade”) treats to share? Want to find folks to play music with? We organized a large open room near the conference center with plenty of space for attendees to gather and socialize, play games and share goodies. We will provide tables and chairs for Board Game Night and some space for jam sessions. You are also welcome to bring stuff to share, from craft sodas and beers to baked goods to local treats - we’ll have a few tables set up for that as well.
For more information and to add to the list of games, check the code4lib wiki.
Alternatively, you can organize your own outing to explore Los Angeles. For a list of LA breweries, bars, taquerias, and general points of interest, check out the Activities Map. You can add an activity to the conference wiki.
The general conference is over, but if you have a bunch of inspired nerds with common interests in one spot, why not organize a little hackfest or meetup? You are on your own to organize at this point, but feel free to contact the Local Planning Committee if you would like assistance securing space.
