Have a passion you'd like to share? Have a community you'd like to
connect with? Want some open discussion on a topic? Create or join a
Birds of a Feather (BoF) after the Friday and Saturday talks.

SCALE 11x will continue the tradition of providing space for groups to
meet and discuss their common interests. The BoFs will be Friday and
Saturday nights, Feb. 22-23. The first BoFs start at 19:00 and the
last start at 22:00.

Sign up on the Birds of a Feather registration page at

If your organization is interested in sponsoring snacks or beverages
for a BoF, please let SCaLE know by contacting

Want a Maker BoF (Raspberry Pi, Arduino, soldering, knitting, etc.)? A
board and card games BoF (Settlers of Catan, Anti-Monopoly, poker)? A
foodie BoF? Programming? Cloud computing? Big data? Community
building? Open data and open standards? Cars? Market forecasting? An
excursion to an offsite activity?

BoFs should be as informal as possible with group interaction -- not
just one person giving a presentation. Even better is if there is
positive inter-group interaction such as multiple local user groups
meeting together or various database groups meeting to discuss future
database and big data needs in the FLOSS ecosystem.

SCALE 11X will be held on Feb. 22-24 at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport
hotel. Special lodging rates are still available by registering for a
room at
 and click on the “reserve online” link. Registration is open as
well – register by visiting
