Deadline for applications is March 20th, 2018 and we will send out invitations to join us at GOAT 2018 in the end of March/early April.
Application criteria:We're looking for people who are actively engaged in open hardware and software for agriculture as developers, users, inventors, tinkerers and thinkers who can contribute to growing the community and movement. This event is for people working in all different forms of ag tech, from farmers/DIYers to academic research and industrial R&D.
Let us know who you are, why you want to attend, and your vision for open ag tech below! Forward this application to people you think would be great additions to the GOAT community. We hope to select a combination that will best represent the diversity of projects in the open ag tech movement.
Note on GOAT 2018 size:The GOAT event in 2018 will be the first of it's kind, and we have limited space to accommodate attendees. Our goal is to bring together 50 people this first year. We hope that it will be the first of many, and that future years can grow to include larger groups.
Note on GOAT 2018 demographic goals:In the application form we are asking about demographics because we are working to make GOAT 2018 as representative of the movement as possible, democratic and equitable. What do we mean by equitable? Check out this visual reference to equality vs. equity: http://tiny.cc/EqualityEquity.
This application should take between 15 to 30 minutes.
