Many of you are familiar with a Birds of a Feather (BoF) session... An unconference is much like that except, an unconference is built the day-of by the people who are there!
Instead of formal sessions, we’ll do Drupally things in a one-day. If you’re unfamiliar with the unconference format, read about organizing and attending.
When the unconference part of the day happens we will follow the "rules" of an unconference:
- Whoever shows up are the right people
- Whatever the results of a session were what was supposed to be
- Whenever it starts is the right time
- It is over when it’s over
Participants should use the "law of two feet" to leave any session if you aren't contributing something positive, getting something out of a session, or feel another session would be more to your liking.
