Federation House
M4 4BF

When is the unconference?
3th November 2018, 9am - 5pm

The unconference doesn’t end there! Once the scheduled proceedings are wrapped up, we will decamp to a Roxy Ballroom to eat, drink and be merry; some of the most important discussions take place during this part of the day.

What Is An Unconference?
An unconference is the opposite of a conference. Where a conference has a schedule of talks planned in advance, an unconference starts with no agenda until the attendees, not the organisers, determine one.

Everyone is encouraged to bring a talk to the event, with the day having 30 minute slots including time for questions, and time for people to change rooms ready for the next talk to begin.

The focus of the unconference is the Drupal Content Management Framework. Supporting subjects including databases, frameworks, security, UX, front-end development and design are also encouraged. The format of the session is up to you, but you can give a presentation, run a Q&A or even hold a pannel discussion. Last year’s topics ranged from practical talks on debugging and code reviews, demonstrations of new contributed Drupal modules, genetic algorithms, the history of encryption and off line capable websites incorporating service workers.

Talks debuted at the 2016 unconference went on to be featured at events such Drupal Mountain Camp in Switzerland and Frontend United in Greece.

Talks debuted at the 2017 unconference went on to be featured at events such as Drupal Developer Days in Seville and Frontend United in Athens.
