Workshop at Open FSharp 2018

Do you have a workshop you would like to give at Open FSharp?

Before going further, here is a bit of information about the event, to help you prepare your submission.

TIMELINE

  • 1st of April: Call for Papers are open.
  • 1st of June: Call for Papers close.
  • 1st of July: All submissions will have received feedback.

SESSION LEVELS

In addition to the main conference, Open FSharp will feature a day of paid workshops on Wednesday, September 26th. Workshops are instructor lead sessions, intended to give a small group of attendees a chance to learn and practice first hand a specific topic.
We will feature two workshop formats:

Deep dive: People have a basic knowledge of F# and want to dive into a specific topic for a full day workshop.

Taster: They are not that familiar yet with the topic, but they want a taste of what can be done with it.

FINANCIALS

Workshop registration will be separate from the main conference. Deep Dives or 2 Tasters will cost $375, a single Taster $225.
Workshop profits will be split equally between the instructor and the conference organization. In other words, for each workshop, half of what is left after the venue, food and various costs are paid for will go to the speaker, the rest being invested in the conference organization. This will be entirely independent from travel support.
If too few people register for a workshop (around 6 attendees), we reserve the right to cancel the workshop, rather than run it at a loss. We will do our best to make that decision as early as possible, likely around mid July.

PREPARATION AND COACHING

If you have ideas or questions you would like to run by us, or if you feel a dry run, some feedback or a bit of coaching would help - we'll do our best to help you get your workshop ready. Feel free to reach out at cfp@openfsharp.org if you want to discuss.

  • Deep dive 8 hours of happiness
  • Taster 4 hours of pure joy
