    Default Xlights 2017 Conference, Las Vegas. May 20&21 2017

    Xlights 2017 Conference, Las Vegas
    When: May 20&21 2017
    Where: Palace Station,Las Vegas. Salon B,C,D

    This year we will have two rooms!! This means twice the hours than last year, same price as last year.

    Room 1: will be hosted by Sean Meighan teaching beginning/intermediate xLights. We will cover everything from not knowing how to spell xLights to getting your first show running. This session will cover creating models and groups, best way to layout house, how to mark up timing marks, over view of all effects, how to import LOR sequences two different ways, how to setup scheduler using FPP and the new xSchedule.exe program.

    Room 2: will be covering advanced xLights. Teachers will be Keith Westley (He is flying in from Australia), Gil Jones (I expect his skulltronix skull will be part of demo) and Lilia Meighan showing how to create effective sequences. Advanced topics cover timing marks, best ways to create singing faces (3 methods), layering, how to setup rds, triggers for your FPP show and more.

    Schedule: meet at 8am and start 8:30am to 5pm daily .
    There are two ways to attend:
    1) In person, Cost $200 for weekend
    2) via zoom webinar. $40 to be able to stream from either of the rooms for the weekend.

    both webinar and seminar attendees will be given a link to download the raw video footage that will be made. This will be 32 hours or around 60 gbytes.

    Lilia will offer one free sequence to all attendees (her choice for sequence). We will also raffle off one sequence (you pick from 43 choices) for seminar attendees and 1 sequence for webinar attendees (You pick from 43 choices).

    Agenda for the two rooms will be posted in the next few weeks. I am going to take polls in the next few weeks to see what subjects users might want to see covered.

    The classes or webinar can be purchased from the xLights store
    http://www.nutcracker123.com/store/index.php?cPath=2

    I will consider putting the videos also available for sale in the store . I am thinking of putting them on a 64 or 128gbyte usb flash drive. DVDs are out of the question as we would nearly 20 of them.

    Lilia plans on a one hour lecture on color, movement, shapes, how to find the music phrase (she does not use audacity). She plans an additional two hour, hands on session. She will provide two music clips 15-30 seconds each. She will explain all the concepts and the students (both webinar and in house) will sequence these. We did not have hands on time last year. I think everyone will become a little bit better at sequencing after her sessions.

    I am creating agenda for both beginning (mostly sean) and advanced rooms (mostly keith and gil). Lilia will give a talk to both rooms at some point in weekend. I will be asking for any specific subjects you might want to see covered.

    You are able to attend either room in any order you want. My only concern is that the rooms are 50 person and 70 person rooms. If everyone goes into one we might need to deal with that.

    Agenda should be out before end of March.

    We look forward to having a great weekend.

    I too would like to see the videos made available on a stick where I don't have to be online to view.
    Can you give a ballpark price for those?

    Were you able to get any breaks on room rates? I would like to attend but $125/night is a little steep for the Palace.

    There is an app called dealsnapt that sends me room discounts. I think the Palace is one of the discounted hotels on there. Also - there is an app called myVEGAS that you can win loyalty points to get discounts on the MGM hotels (New York, Excalibur, etc)
