Call for Pattern Newcomers

Pre-PLoP Bootcamp PLoP 2005 will have a special pre-conference session aimed at people new to patterns, led by Bob Hanmer and Linda Rising. This pre-conference tutorial on Wednesday, September 7th is something different, but needed, in the patterns community -- a "bootcamp" for newcomers. The day-long session will provide an introduction to patterns -- a training, mentoring, experiencing activity, where participants will be immersed in patterns and emerge with an enlarged perspective, their first pattern and an ability to get more out of all PLoP conferences. Writing your own first pattern is extremely important, since there is no better way to learn what patterns are all about!

The only requirements are an open mind, ready to absorb the patterns experience, and an idea for a pattern you will craft at this pre-PLoP session. Bootcampers are encouraged to arrive on September 6th evenning.

Space is limited, so register early.
