Elggcamp Welcome

  1. 1. ElggCamp Boston 2009
  2. 2. Welcome! • We have more than 150 registered attendees coming from all over the country. • We have 10 speakers who have really done great things and have exciting things to share with you. • We’ll be here from now until 5 p.m., then we’re heading out to Charlie’s Kitchen for some intense offline social networking.
  3. 3. Conference purpose • Starting with the 1.5 release, Elgg started to get a lot more attention in the marketplace, especially in the U.S. • The Elgg core team thought it was time to get the “Elgg economy” off the ground here. A major 2-day conference would introduce Elgg to new customers and give potential service providers the information they needed to create Elgg solutions.
  4. 4. ElggCamp network • We’ve set up a demo Elgg site for this event: • http://www.elggcampboston09.elgg.com • Fastest to create an account with your Twitter credentials, but username/password/ email also pretty fast.
  5. 5. Update from yesterday • Elgg was a major sponsor of yesterday’s event, “Social Technology in Education” • Elgg is of huge interest to many high schools and universities, and the conference proved that many of these institutions are asking, “How can we get an Elgg network?” • This is a major opportunity for providers!

  10. 10. • HSCI does research, education and outreach related to stem cell research. • They were a huge help in arranging space and getting the word out at Harvard. • They are working on an Elgg network for their own people.
