Blog by Sumana Harihareswara, Changeset founder
Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2014 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
Its contents offer theoretical vision, practical tips, and best practices that we hope will make the AMC organizing process as smooth and effective as possible, and will hopefully inspire other similar gatherings.
I suspect this, the OpenHatch Event Handbook, Hack Day Manifesto, and Community Event Planning (from the Stumptown Syndicate) overlap a bit, but are all valuable!

Ooh, thanks for the links to all those other event planning guides. bookmarks, downloads, etc
I think the AMC one is really qualitatively different from the others I've read in the past. I love that they set out values, give case studies and ideas of things that worked in the past, and that the whole thing is presented with humour and attractive visual design.
