It's the most wonderful Kscope next year

With abstract records broken and sessions now open

You'll find it all here

It’s the most wonderful Kscope next year.

It’s the hap-happiest crowd of all

With those networking chimes and tutorial times

When friends come from all

Parts of the world-worldliness for y’all.

There’ll be parties for hosting

Marshmallows for toasting

And Community events for you to go

There'll be Deep Dive stories

And tales of the glories of

Kscopes long, long ago.

It’s the most wonderful Kscope next year

We’re going to Texas

So be sure to check us

And don’t miss the good cheer

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

He will share his extraordinary and hilarious story of how he and some friends dropped out of college and started a fake newspaper.

We hope you'll join us at Kscope17!

Participate in Giving Tuesday!

The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is a day many have designated as Giving Tuesday on Twitter and other social networks. In addition to using the #GivingTuesday hashtag, many non-profit organizations create their own unique hashtags to promote giving and saying thanks this time of year.  


Today, we'd like to ask for everyone to help promote awareness of the ODTUG Kscope17 Community Service Day. We will be partnering with Haven for Hope, a place for new beginnings for people in Bexar County (San Antonio) who are experiencing homelessness. The ODTUG Twitter profile will be posting a number of tweets promoting Community Service Day throughout the day today, 11/29/16. We'd love to see as many posts and retweets as possible promoting the day using the #KscopeGivesBack hashtag! 

For example: 

"Today is #GivingTuesday! #KscopeGivesBack during #Kscope17 by helping San Antonians in need! Learn more: http://ow.ly/pAD9306Bcwc

On behalf of the entire ODTUG Kscope17 team, thank you for your help in spreading awareness about Community Service Day
