Arguably one of the best parts of conferences are the Birds of a Feather (BOF) sessions. What is a BOF you ask?
BOF /B-O-F/ or /bof/ n.
Abbreviation for the phrase "Birds Of a Feather" (flocking together), an informal discussion group and/or bull session scheduled on a conference program. It is not clear where or when this term originated, but it is now associated with the USENIX conferences for Unix techies and was already established there by 1984. It was used earlier than that at DECUS conferences and is reported to have been common at SHARE meetings as far back as the early 1960s.
Given enough interest, we will hold our very own PostNuke BOF at the conference. Topics are up to you! How about some of the following:
- A roadmap for PostNuke
- The PostNuke development process: A view from the inside
- Why havent you implemented my pet feature yet?
- PostNuke gossip
