Opensimulator conference 2014

AvaCon and the Overte Foundation are pleased to announce the second annual OpenSimulator Community Conference 2014, to take place virtually on the OpenSimulator Conference Center grid on November 8-9, 2014.  The OpenSimulator Community Conference is an annual conference that focuses on the developer and user community creating the OpenSimulator software. Organized as a joint production by AvaCon and the Overte Foundation, the virtual conference features two days of presentations, workshops, keynote sessions, and social events across diverse sectors of the OpenSimulator user base.

If you missed last years conference, i truly recommend you to visit this year, and if you like / have an interest in Opensim based worlds, this is a party you simply don't want to miss out on. Apart from "seminars" on various very interesting subjects, you will find great freebies, see awesome builds on the display regions, and meet interesting people of a various grids. 

Since I was impressed by last years conference, great organisation, with very interesting sessions on a variety of subjects, "Red Dragon Nite Club" decided to become a community sponsor. So this year we will attend the conference, and be represented with a small booth focused on representing our club in OSgrid. 
As in the end, one has to relax and socialize after scripting and hurling prims on his private simulator all day.   
We are "inworld" for the nice & interesting new people we meet, to create without limits, to have fun, enjoy party's, with DJ's and music and to learn, and share our knowledge and experiences. Our only goal is to simply enjoy virtual life, build a bit, and share good times. OSgrid has a vibrant community of "users" next to all the developers, content creators and people chasing a particular goal. So also if you are not a coder, scripted, developer or builder, still feel free to pop by and visit. Be amazed and inspired.

Road trip trough OSG

Just another weekend teleporting around the map in OSgrid makes you stumble into beautiful worlds. (getting tips from friends does as well). Feel free to drop me an LM if you find / built a little gem on the map. Check some pictures of my travels below, a couple of the cool ones you can slip into (click for large) :


Danger Island

Mystic Forest

Cuteulala Park

Steam has tons of zeppelins and airships, and is an industrial region with loads of ground to explore. Check the machines, the shops, and don't forget to visit the docks. The Danger Island is a gloomy harbor carved out of rocks in the sea, with great sailing ships and a shipyard. It's a VAR that also is home to the beautiful Mystical Forest, where the fairy's linger. You can space out on a giant mushroom here.... And if your done with that ride, visit Cute's Park. It's is OSG's coaster park. With working roller coasters and waterslides. Need I say more ?  It's never boring flying into other worlds.
