The '''Unprofessional Delegates Networking Session''' (or '''UnPDNS''') is the exciting event that gets run alongside the Professional Delegates Networking Session. It's for everyone who can't (or don't want to) go to the PDNS.

This is an index of all the "Birds of a feather" sessions organised and run on an informal basis by attendees of the conference.
  
We took a break in 2013 when running the UnPDNS would have required us to wake up before 7am. Now that the PDNS is back in the evening, we're back for 2014. Woo.

==TBA:==
  
* '''When:''' Thursday night (when the PDNS is on).
+
* [[HAM Radio BoF]]
* '''Where:''' Site 5, Matilda Bay Reserve, right next to the University. See [http://www.dec.wa.gov.au/images/stories/parks/key_attractions/mb_reserve_map_2010_2.jpg this map] for info.
+
* [[OpenRadio BoF]]
* '''What:''' A BBQ (to be confirmed). Food will be $5, and we'll be selling various soft drinks. Alcohol is '''strictly BYO only'''; selling alcohol is in contravention of Western Australia liquor licensing laws.

Add your name so we can figure out how much food to buy. If you're a vegetarian or vegan, add a '''(V)''', so we know how much vegetarian stuff to buy.

# [[Christopher Neugebauer]] (might also be semi-running it sort of)

6am conference mornings from the back of St Georges college on Park Ave. Anyone driving can park right next to this location on Park Ave and it is in the park already.
# [https://twitter.com/LGnome Adam Harvey] (usually gets roped into some sort of organisational activity, or at least collecting money)
+
 
# Mike Fabre ([https://twitter.com/mijofa1 @mijofa1], mijofa on IRC)
+
Conference mornings, Perth has no Daylight saving and it will be hot in January, we will be keen to get a morning run out of the way early.
# Bianca Gibson (bianca.rachel.gibson@gmail.com) (No heavily processed foods from need, not preference. BBQd meat fillet and fresh salad (chop up veges and throw them in a bowl) with optional home made dressing is fine. Happy to help with cooking.)
+
In past years we have met up at 6am to head out for a run, anyone keen to join in is welcome. There are a large number of options in the Kings park area to really enjoy a morning run.
# Elizabeta Sørensen ([https://twitter.com/zemmiph0bia @zemmiph0bia])(happy to help with cooking, fructose and gluten free)
+
 
# [[Craige McWhirter]] - eater of all things. Will help [[Christopher Neugebauer]] if he needs a hand.
+
My initial suggestion is meet out the front of Trinity College each morning and we can find runs to do into Kings Park and along the river. I have done some runs in both areas in the past and it really is worthwhile. There ares ome interesting features such as Jacobs Ladder, a set of stairs many runners test themselves out on at the end of Cliff St at the other end of the park. Good trails through the park and some great scenery along the river for easier runs.
# [[Daniel Bryan]] +1 other. Will help with vegetarian food (a nice salad  or sth) [https://twitter.com/lodoicea @lodoicea]
+
 
# [[Russell Coker]] Happy to help out. Don't need anything special to eat, sausages in bread is great.
+
Also possibly of interest to anyone arriving early (there in time for Saturday morning 4th of Jan or still around the following Saturday morning 11th Jan) there are free timed weekly 5km runs all around Australia called Parkrun. They started in the UK and there a re a huge number over there. In Perth there are 3 on and the closest to the campus is Claisebrook Cove. http://www.parkrun.com.au/claisebrookcove/

I (Steven Hanley) will be competing in both of them as an out of state tourist. To compete and get a time you need to register and bring a printed barcode to the event.

We'll fire up the barbecue on Friday night following the LCA closing talks.

Public Transport isn't great, bus route 400 comes within 700m, route 98 is faster but stops 1.3Km out.

The Industrial Park is largely abandoned after 5pm, so there's plenty of parking for those with transport.

BoFs Recurring on Multiple Days

Running BoF - New location

6am conference mornings from the back of St Georges college on Park Ave. Anyone driving can park right next to this location on Park Ave and it is in the park already.

In past years we have met up at 6am to head out for a run, anyone keen to join in is welcome. There are a large number of options in the Kings park area to really enjoy a morning run.

My initial suggestion is meet out the front of Trinity College each morning and we can find runs to do into Kings Park and along the river. I have done some runs in both areas in the past and it really is worthwhile.
