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 or DMC, you can get on stage and deliver a presentation!
During the breaks or when changing rooms, unconference host Harrie Verveer will be around with a flip chart listing all the unconference talks that have been entered so far. If you see him make sure to have a look, as 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. 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 Harrie on the day itself, and as long as there's room he'll be happy to put you on the schedule.
We’re hoping to see you all at the uncon!
