TikiFest2018 Montreal Ottawa

What

A tradition in the Tiki community, a TikiFest is when there is a meeting between at least two 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 :-)

The majority of the most active contributors to Tiki will be present, with devs from many countries.

It is part of a larger event: WikiSuite Unconference 1

When

Friday September 7th to Wednesday September 19th (12 days).

Part of the event may be in Ottawa, which is a 2-hour train ride.

If you come for a shorter period (ex.: driving from the US), come towards the end, which will be the peak of everyone there. If you are travelling from far (ex.: Israel, Germany or Japan), you should come for two weeks and make that long flight worth it!

What to do for fun in Montreal and Ottawa/Gatineau

If you are from out of town and are planning to do some touristy things in Montreal or Ottawa, here is some info.

Montreal is a very fun and safe city with a vibrant nightlife and an excellent cultural scene. There will be plenty of folks there to help you find something fun to do.

Ottawa is a more "sleepy" town but still many things to do!
