Great. Our schedule will show you who is speaking in which theatre at what time. It will also tell you what type of talk it will be - such as design, code, film, illustration etc. The schedule can be found over here.
Absolutely. Every year we wanna make it fresh and new content. We like our speakers to talk about their wins, their failures, how they overcome hurdles. Tell us the good the bad and the warts, and share how to get through all that. We try every year to bring new faces, and only bring back speakers who we haven't seen for a while. That helps keep it fresh.
Speakers are announced regularly from site launch in late April; the best way to stay up to date is ensure you are subscribed to our newsletter.
This is the benefit of a multi-track format. You can choose to see any talk in any of the 3 theatres that we have running.
Sure, if we have places, you can pay at the door, but, tickets are cheaper in advance.
We believe that one of the biggest benefits to a multi-track event is that you are not likely to sit next to the same person twice! Single track events tend to breed a 'camp mentality' -
We have plenty of breaks to grab a coffee and say hi to people. We have evening get-togethers. But of course, a lot of it is down to you. If you don't want to talk to anyone, the likelihood is that your networking will not be as successful as those who do want to chat and share. Rule of thumb: Bring plenty of business cards, stickers if you like, and be willing to hand them out and trade them!
