  • 1. ElggCamp Boston 2009
  • 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. 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. 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. 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!
  • 6. Interested in Elgg work? If you’re interested in doing some services work for Elgg, let us know: http://www.elggcampboston09.com/elgg-work/
  • 7. Sponsors • In addition to Curverider (the services firm behind Elgg), we would like to thank: • Arck Interactive • The Harvard Stem Cell Institute
  • 8. • Curverider has established a local presence in Boston. • If you’re in New England, and would like to talk to someone about creating an Elgg- based network for your organization, please contact: sales@elggboston.com
  • 9. • Arck Interactive is one of our favorite firms out there that's working with Elgg. They are a boutique web development and design firm based in Chicago, IL. • Arck is focused on social network, e-commerce and content management system development and integration. • Their site is here: http://arckinteractive.com/
  • 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.
  • 11. Housekeeping • Please silence your phones when you are inside the event rooms. • The other room is 309a - near the elevator on the 3rd floor. • Restrooms are in the basement. • We’re not providing lunch - you need to go into Harvard Square - lots of choices there.
  • 12. Housekeeping • Twitter tag is #elggcamp • Flickr and Slideshare tags are: elggcamp • http://www.flickr.com/photos/tags/ elggcamp • http://www.slideshare.net/tag/elggcamp
  • 13. After-events • After the event ends at 5 p.m., we’ll be headed to Charlie’s Kitchen. • We have the second floor reserved, and you can hang out there or in the beer garden in the back. • For those interested, we’ll be headed to Grendel’s around the corner for dinner at 7:30.
