<p>We're building an alternative model: SquatConf.</p>
<p>SquatConf won't be your everyday conference, but we'll have good talks from amazing people. It'll be donation-based, and you'll get to contribute if you want to.</p>

<p>Conferences costs are huge, and ticket prices are often <a href="http://2014.lxjs.org/about/">nowhere near the true per-attendee cost</a>, even for a non-profit conference.</p>

<p>If you hold a conference in a squat…
the speakers advance their travel expenses…
host in squatted spaces…
tell people to bring some food…
and the wifi will be dodgy for sure…</p>
<p>You'll have a zero-cost conference made with love, but a little rougher around the edges.</p>

<p>We are a bunch of crazy programers that believe in anarchy and decentralised systems, conferences included.</p>
<p>We will provide a space, we will provide a context, some talks, and the rest will be up to you…</p>

<p>The inception of SquatConf was at <a href="http://2014.lxjs.org/">LXJS</a>. It was a great conference, and the organisation did an amazing job, and after the final day of the event we ended up with <a href="https://github.com/dominictarr">dominictarr</a>, <a href="https://github.com/joates">joates</a> and <a href="https://github.com/gorhgorh">I</a> talking about autonomous self driving boats when this idea came to life. Now the idea matured and some folks (<a href="https://github.com/mmalecki">mmalecki</a>, <a href="https://github.com/nathan7">nathan7</a>, <a href="https://github.com/no9">no9</a>, <a href="https://github.com/substack">substack</a>, ...) are in the loop now.</p>

<li>Tickets will be donation-based. You want a cheap conference? Give us nothing. You want food? Contribute.</li>
<li>This won't be a 400-people event, but do you <em>need</em> that many people?</li>
