General organization

Get the venue first and get a commitment early.

Tricky part is to convince everyone to not do a lot of work.  Make a budget for how much we’ll work.  To meet the budget, don’t try to do too much and instead focus entirely on the quality of the content.  No burn out and no heroes, just keep it light-weight.

People get distracted on shwag, food, etc...  For the first camp, this is really not important.

Important stuff:

#1: People meet each other.

#2: Quality of the sessions.

#3: Everything else.
