Birds of a Feather
“Birds-of-a-Feather” (BOF) sessions are moderated, open discussions on technology-related topics proposed by BEA2012 attendees. A topic may be related to BEA2012content, or any other technology topic that would be of interest to conference attendees. BOF sessions are not formal presentations with slides or software demonstrations. Instead, the format is casual and open. The BOF sessions are a great opportunity to meet with other attendees that have common interests and exchange ideas. You do not have to be a subject matter expert in order to host a session, although you need to have a genuine interest in the topic. There will be a sign-up sheet near the registration desk if you wish to propose a BOF session. Session Organizer: Shane Tilton, Ohio University - Lancaster
