Field Day is for student leaders of technical communities in the Los Angeles area. Most attendees will be undergraduate students.
A student leader is someone who's actively involved in improving their local technical community. They might be the president or chairperson of their school's tech club or be one of the organizers of the annual hackathon. They might run the student hardware group or be actively involved in introducing other students to programming.
A loosely structured conference emphasizing the informal exchange of information and ideas between participants (to quote the Google definition). Most content at Field Day will be in the form of lightning talks and discussions conducted by attendees.
