For those unfamiliar with the format, the conference is a participant-driven meeting, comprising of talks and discussion workshops led by you, the attendees. Open format conferences allow for all attendees to lead the direction and themes of the day. Meaning you can have truly useful conversations with others.
But what can I contribute? Do I need to come with a prepared presentation?
It doesn't matter if you contribute a little or a lot, in any case, you'll be surprised at what you can achieve in this format - even if you see yourself as a beginner. It's not about 'eyes forward' presentations, so if you go to the trouble of creating such a thing, it's likely it won't get used. On the other hand, if you're familiar with some technology that others might like to learn about, we might end up asking you to show us. But not in a formal way. To sum up then, all you need is your brain!
To hold it all together Udi Dahan will be joined by London .NET UG lead, Ian Cooper.
