Question:Should we also do the same tracking for other Developers and QA/Testing professionals?

To do (tasks)

  • for each each participant
    • link to MediaWiki user page
    • add twitter accounts
  • Travel arrangements
    • map travel dates
    • when/where they are arriving
    • where are they staying
  • figure out what to do with the leaders when they are there
  • should we create a welcome pack for these leaders?
  • should we see if they need help in their travel arrangements?
  • should we see if its possible to find a local host for the accomodation (it is always better than going into an hotel)?
  • do we need a budget? if so, how much?
