Each month members share their knowledge in open spaces. Sessions are presented by members of the community and there are no pre-set topics.  

The topics and facilitators are determined at the event by the attendees. The unconference typically has 3 concurrent tracks. Members facilitate sessions or present and attendees attend sessions they are interested in.   

The vast majority of the sessions are in ""round-table" format, meaning that they are a discussion amongst everybody in the room.   

Schedule:  

  • 6:00 pm - Doors open for food, beer & networking  
  • 6:45 pm - Begin the UnConference!  
  • 7:00 pm - UnConference session 1
