TikiFest2009-Toronto

A tradition in the TikiWiki community, a TikiFest is a meeting between Tiki contributors (that don't usually meet). This is an opportunity, usually, to drink adult beverages, 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 biggrin

If you are new/curious about Tiki, come and meet the contributors. There will be a free workshop "introduction to Tiki" and a TikiFest cocktail. Details will be on wiki page soon.
