Default InsightFest 2018 - Madison, WI July 13, 14 & 15 - 5 year Anniversary Edition!

You've been waiting and now it is here... InsightFest 2018 - 5 year Anniversary Edition!!!!

Where:
Sector 67 – Madison's Premier Community Workshop/Hackerspace
56 Corry St
Madison, WI

When:
* Friday, July 13
* Saturday, July 14
* Sunday, July 15

InsightFest 2018 is a weekend filled with Insight conversation and camaraderie. Old friends and new friends. Insightful sessions, car show, swap meet, and outdoor space in the parking lot to work on cars (within reason).

A lift will be available for short demonstrations throughout the weekend.(~1 hour sessions). If you have a topic to present please contact me and we can schedule something.

Community members will update us on their latest projects and you get a chance to ask those questions that you've always wanted to ask. Like where is that leak coming from? Or, can I run an Insight without the IMA?

Share your stories. Show off your mods. Put screen names with faces.

REGISTRATION FORM:
Today (July 9) I closed the form for new registrations for InsightFest 2018.
We have over 30 people registered so it will be a pretty full house.

If you did not register but were still thinking about coming, please call me directly at 608-729-4082 before showing up. I'd prefer folks not to show up unannounced.
Cost per person: $60


Food
Other than the Friday night Eat and Greet, in general, the registration fee does not include food. Food costs will be on your own. There are restaurants nearby as well as great food delivery options. There will likely be group orders, but you will need to pay for meals.

Schedule of Events https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing
LAST UPDATED: 7/9/2018 3:30pm
It is a work in progress and everything is subject to change
If you have a topic you would like to present, please let me know! [email protected] 608-729-4082
- Friday setup begins at 10am.
- First official session at 1pm Friday with plenty of informal discussion before then.

Saturday begins a bit earlier at 9am.

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped with previous InsightFests, as well as those who are helping make InsightFest 2018 a reality!

Sponsors for InsightFest 2018 include:

Sounds great. Last year was very enjoyable and with the new facility this is likely to be very better. I'll be enrolling.

Because we can't find a Mid-America venue with a willing and qualified organizer.

There is the Mid-Atlantic Meet much closer to you

Is the "7 July 2018 to be held in Frederick Maryland" the Mid-Atlantic Meet? Just one week before the Madison meet still on?

They have a placeholder for the event, so I'd say yes.
I spoke to those organizers and we decided to have Madison right after theirs.

Default Two Insight Events in July!

Looks like I will be piling more miles on my G1 in July.
Thanks for the quick reply Eric. I truly enjoyed last year's event that you had organized in beautiful Madison Wisconsin. I will be signing up soon for the 2018 anniversary event.
