About Community Leadership Summit

The Community Leadership Summit is the leading peer-to-peer knowledge sharing event for community leaders. The event  creates a space  where new and seasoned community leaders can share and learn from each other and thus grow the art,  science, and profession of community leadership and management. While the main Community Leadership Summit takes place each year in Portland, Oregon, there are  also locally organized events known as CLSx events. These conferences  are designed  to take the core format and spirit of the main event and provide a framework to organize smaller local events.

About CLSxEurope

CLSxEurope brings the Community Leadership Summit to an EU audience. Following on from its kick off in Berlin during Linuxtag in May 2014, CLSxEurope will, this year, be held in London prior to OSCON.

As with all CLS events, the program will be a combination of plenary sessions and participant driven open space sessions. We’re also pleased to announce we have 3 keynote speakers this year that warm up the crowd for the unconference part of CLSxEurope.

About Open Space Sessions

New to the concept of Open Space sessions? No worries. We’ll discuss the process even more at CLSxEurope, but for now you can read this primer from our friends at DevOpsDays Amsterdam.
