Whatever you call a technical community (mongers, masons, monks, mongrels or misfits), there's some work behind organizing one. The speaker has been involved in one of these groups - Oslo.pm - for almost 10 years, and in this time gathered a few impressions on what works and what doesn't.

In this talk we'll explore some of the events Oslo.pm has organized, share how they turned out and try to figure out why they went well - or didn't. We'll touch upon topics like money, volunteering, burn-out and the importance of fun.

But this isn't an Oslo.pm talk only! We'll also make room to for other .pm group members that have something to share! Bring your experiences, or if you haven't any - bring your questions and curiosity.

If all goes well, we'll end up with some ideas for an even better community! :D
