The first event, April 11-14 in Montréal is planned to cover Tiki security, improvements to CartoGraf and Tiki Maps, and the new TimeMap feature (a timeline for maps). Also, we'll be working on tv.tiki.org and our integration with the Kaltura video management application.

Then, the TikiFest travels to Ottawa for April 16-22. Planned topics range from UX and themes, to continued integration with BigBlueButton, to a preview of the upcoming Tiki 11. There will also be several Tiki workshops on customization, configuration, and consulting.
