Community Courtyard

Through the duration of the 2009 Lansing Day of .Net Alan Stevens will be facilitating a Community Courtyard. A Community Courtyard is similar to an Open Space event, but missing the formality, such as an opening circle and morning/evening news. The Community Courtyard is designed to be space that conference attendee's can have open, in depth discussions with the conference speakers and other attendee's. In Alan's own words

So what is a Community Courtyard? It’s whatever you want it to be. Seriously, when you look at the conference agenda and notice a topic is missing that you are interested in, you can put it on the agenda for the courtyard. Whoever shows up is going to be interested in the topic, so even if you only talk to one other person, the conversation is almost guaranteed to be productive.

Personally, I think of the courtyard as a public speakers lounge. For years, I’ve had fantastic conversations with smart interesting people in the speakers lounge at events. Unfortunately, the attendees couldn’t participate in these great conversations. I want to change that.
