Policy plan outline
This is the outline of our policy plan. More details can be found in The ClojureDays Foundation Policy Plan 2020.
We support the computer programmer community worldwide, our main focus is on the community surrounding the Clojure programming language in the Netherlands.
We aim to achieve the goal by organising and supporting conferences, meetups, workshops, development of open source software libraries and other related activities.
Establishment end of 2019
In november 2019, we established the foundation.
ClojureDays 2020 conference
We will organize the Dutch Clojure Days 2020 annual conference to be held in may
- The conference will host about 150 people and will be free of charge for attendees.
To finance the conference and other activities we’re attracting corporate sponsors to the conference who will provide funds in exchange for exposure to the Clojure programming community.
Based on data from previous conferences we expect costs for the 2020 conference to be about €16,000 - €20,000 euros all in.
We aim to keep a limited amount of funds for foundation operating costs (mostly infrastructure and administration costs) and general reserves for next year’s conference if sponsoring brings in less than expected.
We plan to organize another Dutch Clojure Days conference in 2021.
The foundation was established 11th of november 2019. We will organise at least one conference in 2020; Dutch Clojure Days 2020
The first fiscal year will run from november 2019 till 31 december 2020. We will provide a financial report within 6 months after the end of the fiscal year.
