Topic areas likely to be on the agenda include...

  • Managing Nonprofit Technology Projects
  • Online Organizing for Grassroots Campaigns
  • Digital Security and Privacy
  • Processes for Sustainable Online Communications
  • Social Justice in California
  • Participant-Led Sessions: More than half of the agenda will be built by participants before and during the event, covering topics, tools, themes and issues proposed by those present.
  • Learning by Making: Hands-on workshops for sharing essential technology skills.

More, more more! Tell us what other hands-on tech skills you would like to learn, and we'll try to find facilitators to get you there.
