What is an unconference? An unconference is a participant-driven meeting where the content and focus is determined by the attendees. Unconferences provide opportunities for participants to share their ideas, learn from others, and develop a collaborative network of peers. Anyone can host a session without needing to prepare anything in advance. You can also suggest a topic for a session. Sessions will be determined during the conference. Please come prepared to share!
