A typical day
No one unconference is like another; that's the beauty of it. Breakfast out of the way, we'll start with an introductory session with 2 minute lightning talks from delegates, and the chance to learn a bit about each other. The discussion topics are then voted on and the day gets under way (9 discussions run in 3 parallel rooms). We tie things up with a final session where a representative from each discussion shares the key learning points.
