It is a Code4Lib tradition to welcome those who are new to the conference by organizing dinner groups on the night before the general conference begins. Sign-up is organized by the Social Activities Committee on the wiki, and we try to mix a few newcomers with a few veterans who can offer an informal introduction to the conference. Great for making new friends!
All attendees are invited to join us for a "disturbingly informative" opening reception at America’s finest museum of medical history. The Mütter Museum displays its beautifully preserved collections of anatomical specimens, models, and medical instruments in a 19th-century “cabinet museum” setting.
The reception includes an open bar and free access to the museum exhibits from 5:45PM through 7:45PM. We will also provide a selection of vegan, vegetarian, and omnivore friendly appetizers featuring: Pennsylvania flatbreads, a locally-sourced variety of sausages, and a Mediterranean spread that includes three different varieties of hummus and other plates.
Special thanks to the Knight Foundation for sponsoring the reception.
The social events are organized by the community on the wiki. This often includes a Game Night, Drink Up, Movie Night, but not limited to that. Want to set up a Jam Session? Organize a concert outing? Make it happen! It's in your hands.
The general conference is over, but if you have a bunch of inspired nerds with common interests in one spot, why not organize a little hackfest or meetup? You are on your own to organize at this point, but feel free to contact the Local Planning Committee if you would like assistance securing space.
