Just like last years there will be an unconference again! The “Uncon” is an informal track running alongside the main conference, and is meant to give everybody attending an opportunity to speak. That's right! If you're at DPC, you can get on stage and deliver a presentation!
This year, PHPWomen and AmsterdamPHP joined forces in providing your uncon hosts. Lineke Kerckhoffs-Willems and Pascal de Vink (when he’s not speaking himself!) will be around with a flip chart with the schedule. Have a look at the flip chart during the breaks or when changing rooms to see if there are sessions you’d want to see and come join us! Last years have proven that the content at the unconference often can be just as interesting as the presentations in the main tracks. The unconference talks will also be announced on the @dpcon twitter account.
If you've been thinking about speaking but never really gave it a try, didn't get your talk proposals accepted at a conference yet or if you simply have a great idea, tool or concept that you want to share with the world, this is your chance! No selection procedures and no experience required. First-come, first-served. If you come to our speakers workshop on thursday, you have the advantage of being the first to enter your name on the schedule! And to sweeten the deal some more: the best uncon speaker will be awarded a guaranteed speaker-slot at the main conference next year!
Uncon talks should take up to either 15, 30 or 45 minutes. To speak simply find Lineke or Pascal on the day itself, and as long as there's room they'll be happy to put you on the schedule.
We’re hoping to see you all at the uncon!
