ADSD Unconference

Topics covered at #

Tuesday, 24th June at The Skills Matter eXchange, London

Starts at 5:00 PM.

Skills Matter and Particular Software warmly invite you to the ADSD unconference at Skills Matter on June 25th.

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.


24th June - 5pm - 8pm: We invite all attendees to come along to Skills Matter to meet with Udi and the rest of the Unconference attendees to set the agenda for the following day. Please bring along your ideas for sessions which can be discussed and will be voted on. The most popular sessions will make up the agenda for the Unconference on 25th June.
