A tradition in the TikiWiki community, a TikiFest is a meeting between Tiki contributors (that usually meet only 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
If you are new/curious about Tiki, come and meet the contributors. There will be someone available to provide you with a one-to-one orientation any day. There will be a free workshop "introduction to Tiki" and TikiFest refreshments (beer and wine).
