We are planning an 'Audacity Unconference 2014' (AU14), and want to know what you would like it to be!

The idea here is to give people the time and space to get together with like-minded people for a chat and maybe a soft drink / beer etc. afterwards. Have some fun!

What will you gain? Maybe amazing music. Maybe some useful lesson plans. Maybe a novel way to measure the speed of sound. Maybe a collaboration with another school / researcher. Maybe a chat with a developer. Maybe a chance conversation with a future collaborator. Who knows? Maybe some inspiration?

This will be held at UCLan (University of Central Lancashire) in Preston, England, sometime in July 2014. We have various spaces available for break-outs, jam sessions, etc., all the normal university stuff. Space to do stuff.

We are making progress on finding halls-of-residence for (hopefully) cheap accommodation. This will not be a free event, but we are looking to keep costs down.

We would like to make this available to all Audacity people, such as (in no particular order):

  • Audacity users
    • Educators
      • school teachers
      • university lecturers
    • Musicians
    • Podcasters
    • Researchers
      • reverb developers
      • whale-song researchers
  • Developers
  • Forum 'elves'
  • Translators
  • etc. etc..

Anybody with an interest in Audacity, really. Help me extend this list. :-)

We intend to get a 'survey' out there shortly to find out what the interest is in doing this, and find out what you want from this event. Then you will be able to register your interest and promote it to your various contacts. Numbers will be limited, so watch this space!
