This is a special event for organizers of interest and user groups. Whether you are new as a community leader, or have many years experience, we invite you to join this workshop on how to make your Foo Café events engaging for your audience. If you have not yet organized an event with us, but would like some help getting started, this is a great opportunity to learn more.
Every event you host is a learning moment. Creating a seminar is different from a workshops, hackathon, or pitch night. We're asking all of you to share your experiences, learn from each other, and help other communities thrive.
