FOSS events planner

The FOSS events planner is a tool to build your own, flexible event. It's intended to highlight many things that are possible - and how to plan them - while still not giving you a fixed event format.

For that, it documents features of events and some general categorisation of these.

Additionally, the planner gives additional documentation for general subjects (budgeting, accessibility strategy, CFP, etc.).

  • A description
  • A category

  • The how?
  • Effort
  • Plannability
  • Budgeting
  • Hidden things
  • Tasks and time frames
  • Suppliers

Description

The why?

Plannability

How plannable is this feature? Is it something that most likely stays within the effort calculation, or is it something prone to running over time or being delayed?

Hidden things

All the knowledge we have about unpredicted things happening, making the conference a worse experience.

Tasks and Time frames

This is a list of tasks that must be done to implement this feature and when they should be done to make sure the feature has effect.
