We are planning to have a developer + documentation sprint for 2 days just prior to the conference.
The goal of this event is to actually contribute to ERPNext. Ofcourse you can network, but we expect you are willing to spend more than 70% of your time contributing rather than just networking.
If you are planning to come, please add your name by replying to this post. We may request some contribution if the venue / lunch expense goes above our conference budget.
Also a kind reminder to book your conference tickets! https://erpnext.org/conf/2018
