We on the Evergreen Conference planning committee have had some very good questions about the conference programs, and I’ll quote one (almost) verbatim:
“Would attending this first Evergreen conference likely be useful for someone who doesn’t use Evergreen now, but would like a sort-of crash-course?Â I’m more interested in seeing and hearing basic implementation stories and technical issues that tend to crop up in early stages of Evergreen deployment; will that be a part of the tracks?”
The answer: absolutely! Consider this a track-within-a-track that can cross functional lines (staff, tech, admin). Success stories, getting-started stories, how and why you selected Evergreen, the value of using Evergreen, how you made the pitch — consider these for full programs, as well as lightning talks and even Birds of a Feather sessions where you can swap tales and tips.
If you’re trying to persuade stakeholders of the economic and technical feasibility of Evergreen, the Evergreen International Conference is a great conference to attend.
