planner roles

We need the following roles and responsibilities to be picked up by planners!

  • sponsors - for food, t-shirts
  • t-shirts (get estimate, make sure to order in time for the event, I think Ben Ward may be working on this - check with him)
  • food - coordinate / match up sponsors with meals and make sure the meals arrive and are setup for the attendees
  • setup - be in charge of setup the day of, coordinate with venue on setup plenty of time *before* the start of the camp!
  • volunteer coordinator - recruit and organize volunteers the day of the event to help out with food, setup
  • cleanup - enlist help of volunteers and all devCamp participants to help with cleanup

If you're a planner, please pick up and move one or more of these roles/responsibilities to your name above. Thanks!


  • If we're still in the planning/getting sponsors/finding a venue stages, perhaps we should postpone a week? As far as availability, I'm free most weekends through till the end of August. We should pick a target date & get moving if we want this to happen. --Lauren Scime 17:20, 10 July 2009 (UTC-7)
    • We have postponed a week from the original goal of 7/18 to 7/25.
    • Please see planner roles section and grab 1-2 roles that you want to help out with and add them next to your name in the planners list as Rohit, Chris and I have done. --Tantek 17:36, 14 July 2009 (UTC)


Like all BarCamps, this event is what it is because of what everyone puts into it. Volunteer to help setup, check people in, clean up, and help people in general have a good time and get things done.
