A tradition in the Tiki community, a TikiFest is a meeting between Tiki contributors (that usually only meet online). This is an opportunity, usually, to socialize over drinks, get some laptops out and code wildly in group sessions and/or discuss about wiki technology and culture, etc. depending the mood and context. It is a great opportunity for Tiki users and Tiki power users to meet some of the developers and learn more stuff :-)

The main topic of this event is to improve both Tiki, BigBlueButton and the interaction between the two. ))BigBlueButton(( is an open source real-time collaboration tool. (Audio/Video/Screensharing/Chat), which is built upon several open source components and with a focus on distance education.

Tiki5 offers a built-in integration with ))BigBlueButton((. You can try it out now at: http://live.tikiwiki.org/


August 15-16-17-18, 2010 (Official Dates)

We recently got the good news that Tiki has been offered a presentation slot during the SummerCamp Open Source Conference which will be held in Ottawa on August 14th. In order to maximize the synergies of both events, we have moved up the TikiFest by a week.

We hope this does not affect anyones schedules and we can't wait to see everyone live and online for this exciting week in August.
