COSCUP 2010開催!!!

自從由Pingooo手上接手COSCUP 2010的籌辦,至今已經8個月過去了。這一段時間,我們都在鴨子滑水,檯面上看不到太多動作,不過夥伴們都很熱血的在努力籌備的事項。

Fred說得好:哇咧~明明就才剛辦完 2009, 怎麼又進入籌備狀態了 orz

如果你還是不太熟悉COSCUP是什麼?COSCUP = Conference for Open Source Coders, Users and Promoters = 開源人年會,是台灣開放原始碼社群一年一度的大聚會。


去年我很榮幸的被邀請加入COSCUP 2009籌備團隊,作為會計長的角色,實際上會計組絕大部分時間只有我一個人。用了一些撇步節省許多時間後,我有很多很多的空餘時間用來提供建議。於是,統計出來的結果,個人的發言居然排名第五。XD

就一個應該很安靜的會計部門來說,我的發言實在是太過超量了。或許就是這個原因,當我們選舉2010年總召時,Pingooo一提名,馬上就全票通過。


在我繼續下去之前,請容我翻翻舊帳,也幫自己複習一下COSCUP是怎麼來的?


COSCUP 的起源是因為幾位好朋友期望能夠辦一個真正讓開放原始碼社群都可以參加的嘉年華會,從2006年到現在,參與的朋友愈來愈多,給COSCUP團隊非常大的 鼓舞。經過了2006到2008年的成長期,2008年開始擴大舉辦,廣邀台灣各地的社群一同來舉辦COSCUP,使得COSCUP不但是為了社群而辦, 更是由社群來辦,成為了一個真正屬於社群的研討會。時間來到了2009年,這一年是COSCUP有史以來辦得最為盛大的一年。550人的報名就在短短4小 時多就爆滿!眾多琳瑯滿目的國際A咖以及本土的一流廠商都加入了我們的贊助行列。講者群也是一個華麗到不行。

最重要的是,參與的群眾們之中,我們就收回來的問卷統計,有高達97.4%的比例願意介紹這個活動給他的親朋好友。順道一提,由2006年到目前為止,每年的聽眾成長率為60%,今年若還是依照這個比例走下去,預期會有實際700人到場。若是加上贊助商、講者、工作人員,很有可能將會逼近1000人參與這個盛會。

COSCUP 2010團隊立志要把這個研討會辦成 「真。社群大拜拜」


接下了這個重責大任之後,我的第一個任務就是立即開始把團隊找齊。管理學上,講究Right people do right thing right,鞏固組織成為我的第一要務。(OS: 既然被你們推坑,那我也把你們也推坑。XD)


感謝Pingooo的努力,2009年的籌備團隊有極佳的默契,每個人也都有極佳的執行能力。想要『輕輕鬆鬆第一次當總召就上手』的我,當然是請過往有充足經驗的社群朋友一起再接棒COSCUP 2010

令人振奮的是,BobChao, Lman, Pingooo, KC, Rex, Ijs, Layla, 魏藥, HYChen, CCLien, Lzy... 幾位朋友,一句話就充滿著義氣的出來幫忙。

意義是三小,我只知道義氣!

不過,在那個當下,我耳朵邊還嗡嗡著我自己說的話:行銷和公關,2009年缺乏專職的工頭來執行,是偏弱的事項。

在幾位好友的幫忙推薦以及牽線下,Kevin自告奮勇接下行銷工頭,Lloyd也願意下海來當我們的公關。由於Lloyd人在高雄,許多需要聯絡的事項, 我也幫忙他在台北找了一個幫手John Lee。

後來,由於公關和行銷之間溝通的成本太高,紛擾之中,我們把行銷和公關兩組合併,新的行銷公關組由Lloyd領軍,Kevin還是充滿義氣的繼續留下來打拼。眼見行銷的工作順利上軌道,真的要感謝Kevin和Lloyd兩個人以及整個公關行銷組的合作無間。

若是有看過今年的網站,大家會不會驚呼:哇!好專業啊~~~ 是的,今年的網站雖然花了比預期還多的時間,不過在網站組的努力之下,整個專業感就塑造出來了。


除了這些以外,各組的努力我也會在日後的官方部落格中一一揭露。

各位工頭以及參與2010年籌備事項的朋友,我為了你們的勇氣和熱血感動得很吶~~~

雖然有一些籌備項目的時程上不如預期,小小地滑了一下,COSCUP 2010 還是拉上發射軌道了。期待今年的 COSCUP 還是一場快快樂樂的大拜拜,讓大家來看看老朋友、交交新朋友、順便學點新玩意!

COSCUP 2010 set off!!!

2010/04/12 22:07
It has been 8 months since we took over the organization of COSCUP 2010 from Pingooo. In this period of time, there have been many tasks we needed to undertake, however through our dedicated team we have succeeded in a smooth transfer.

The dedication of our team was summarized by Fred in a joking manner, "WOW~ COSCUP 2009 just ended, yet are we in the state of preparing again! Oh dear".

COSCUP, if you are not aware, stands for Conference for Open Source Coders, Users and Promoters which is an annually run gathering for Taiwan Open Source Communities. It is the largest open source conference held in Taiwan.  

Last year, I had the honor of being invited to join the COSCUP 2009 team as chief accountant. For the most part I undertook a lone role in the accounting division and armed with many time saving tips I was able to offer a lot of suggestions to COSCUP.

Departments in general are supposed to be quiet. However, I am a person that likes engaging in conversation! Maybe that is why when Pingooo was nominated in the election; everyone agreed unanimously!

Before continuing, please allow me to review how COSCUP came into existence.

COSCUP originated from several friends who wanted to organize an event for Open Source communities. Since 2006, COSCUP has gone from strength to strength gaining members each year. After initial expansion during 2006 to 2008, COSCUP started to widely invite communities from every corner of Taiwan to participate. COSCUP isn't only organized for communities, but also by communities, which makes COSCUP a true community conference. COSCUP 2009 was the most successful to date as the 550 available places were taken within 4 hours. In addition to this, not only has COSCUP been successful attracting high caliber speakers, but it has been equally successful on a business front attracting sponsorship from various international A+ enterprises and numerous great local companies.

The most important point for our team is the satisfaction of our attendees. According to our questionnaires, up to 97.4% attendants are willing to introduce this event to their friends. This is excellent news and demonstrates the quality of conference. Through this quality we have maintained an extremely high growth rate. Since 2006 the growth rate has been 60%! If this rate remains constant there will be 700 attendants this year. Add to the sponsors, speakers, and staffs, there may be approximately 1000 people there!

The COSCUP 2010 team is determined to make this conference an awesome community gathering again.

Taking on this big responsibility, my first mission was to seek team members. A famous management saying has always stuck with me "Right people do things right". Therefore strengthening the organization with talented people became my top priority.

Thanks to Pingooo's effort, COSCUP 2009 had an excellent team. As the new Chairman, I invited experienced friends from the community to help with COSCUP 2010. Inspiringly,  BobChao, Lman, Pingooo, KC, Rex, Ijs, Layla, MedicalWei, HYChen, CCLien, and Lzy all stepped forward to take on the mantle.

意義是三小,我只知道義氣!( Meaning is nothing, while loyalty means everything!)

However, at that moment, COSCUP was stilling lacking a head for marketing and PR. With the support of several friends, Kevin took lead of the marketing group and Lloyd led the PR team. Since Lloyd lives in Kaohsiung, I also found a helper, John Lee, to maintain affairs in Taipei.

Due to some communication difficulties between the marketing group and PR team, we combined the two with Lloyd's leading and Kevin offering his assistance. I really appreciated the co-operation of Kevin and Lloyd as well as both teams commitment to COSCUP.

If you have already visited our website this year, you will be amazed by its professional look. The website team has done a great job as always!



I have to say I am moved by everyone’s commitment to COSCUP and thank them for their excellent work throughout the year.

Despite some delays, COSCUP 2010 is on track at this moment. I am looking forward to COSCUP this year, meeting up with old and new friends as well as seeing some fresh gadgets!

     TimeAug. 14th, 2010 - Aug. 15th, 2010
