UAPI is an unConference. It has no assigned speakers or panels, so it's about getting stuff done. We will have a trained open space facilitator at the workshop to run the show and make sure we are properly organized.
UAPI is a participatory workshop.Because it is an unConference you are invited to speak and share, pose questions or ask for input.If you have an idea for a session now or even get one in the middle of the conference, youre welcome to propose it and run a session.
The agenda will be created live each day by attendees present at the opening of the day. Anyone who wants to host a session that day will announce the topic and chose a space and time. There is no voting or picking other than with your feet, where you choose to go. You'll have plenty of chances to exchange ideas and make new professional connections.You can seethe growing list of potential topics hereput forth by those who have already registered.
