Description

EVENT

We are pleased to announce a SakaiCamp un-conference in Orlando Florida January 27-30, 2019.

HOTEL

The Group room rate at the Holiday Inn Disney Springs is $139 per night. The Group Code for reservations is APE and the phone number for attendees to call is 877-394-5765, or you can use the following link to make reservations online: Hotel Reservations at group rate.

The hotel cancellation policy is 48 hours advance notice.

Please let sakaicoordinator@apereo.org know if you plan to park a vehicle at the hotel. We have a limited number of free parking passes for the group (first come, first serve). We have also negotiated a reduced $10 parking fee for attendees without parking passes.

TRAVEL

There are two good airport options coming into Orlando.

Orlando/Sanford International Airport: 45 miles from hotel (about 50 minutes drive). Mostly flies Allegiant and smaller carriers from regional airports (including international http://www.orlandosanfordairport.com/airlines.asp) . Might be an option for some people.

Orlando International Airport: 17 miles from hotel (about 25 minutes drive). Major carriers and most likely option.

Airport car rentals are available at both airports. Otherwise taking a Supershuttle from the airport (about $18 one way) is an option if you do not want to rent a car. Taxi, Uber, and Lyft are also options. Once at the hotel, having a car might not be too useful as many places are within walking distance, others might have cars and there are other transport options available.

AUDIENCE

This is a small working conference of 20 or so community members, with a mixed bag of roles and perspectives. Developers, Managers, Instructional Designers and more. There is something for everyone.

FOCUS

The primary focus is collaborative planning around the project.

SPACE

This is an open meeting and anyone in the Sakai or Apereo communities are welcome to attend. Space is limited and we anticipate being able to accommodate 40 people maximum. In past years we've averaged about 20 to 25 attendees.

ITINERARY

The overall format of the SakaiCamp is an un-conference and as such very dynamic. We have whole-group topics and break-out topics. We do plan some topics in advance and sometimes even have guest speakers for specific topics (like Accessibility, Sakai UI Inventory, etc).

The Sakai PMC and Sakai Community Coordinator will be running the main meeting although there will likely be lots of little side meetings going on from time to time.

Dinner Monday evening will be sponsored by Learning Experiences at Cafe Tu Tu Tango.
