  1. Have an idea for an event. :)
  2. Plan where and how to present your content.
    1. The lab space (capacity: x people)
      1. Is there a working projector in the space?
      2. There are a couple of whiteboards you can use.
    2. The auditorium (capacity: y people)
    3. The sanctuary (capacity: z people)
  3. Assemble any necessary parts.
  4. Use the Church's calendar, if applicable, and Event Calendar to schedule a date and time. Please try not to overlap with other HacDC events. Also, please try to give potential participants at least a week's notice.
  5. Add the event description, including date and time and anything participants should bring, to this page. Clearly note if this is a HacDC member-only event.
  6. Publicize! Send an e-mail to the hacdc mailing list and possibly to Friends of HacDC. Blog it.
  7. Run the event. Share your knowledge. Have fun. Take some pictures.
  8. How did it go? Blog it! Have suggestions for next time? Add them here!
