Sessions & Schedule

  • NOTE: we are expecting nearly 80 100 120 people. We cannot all fit in one room. It is GOOD to have overlapping sessions. There are plenty of slots open.
  • If you are considering hosting one, please do. Session creators, please post only one session in the main suites, hosting additional sessions elsewhere so more people get a chance to present.
  • We'll have most of these sessions in one of the four suites we've reserved, so you don't *have* to do your session in your own room. Though if you want to, go for it.


Thinking about hosting a session?

You should. Read this first.
