Details

MK .NET is proud to be hosting an awesome one-day "Unconference".

The venue is generously provided by VWFS at their spacious offices, located in the north of Milton Keynes. Twilio will be providing some grub.

Sponsorship
===========

If your company is interested in sponsoring, please reach out to Layla or Shahid. Our group is not commercial, so we are always grateful for support for our developer-community. This could be simple, practical sponsorship such as snacks, or perhaps travel assistance for underprivileged members.

What's an "UnConference"?
========================

An unconference is a free-form user group, where we decide as a group, which talks (both full-length and lightning) we would like to listen to. This will be chosen from a selection of talk submitted by members and visiting guests, whether in advance or on the day.

We can also spontaneously organise workshops - so if there is something you would like to learn, you can spend time side-by-side with people who know about a subject!

We have a large amount of space to work with, including the main auditorium and a number of smaller meeting rooms. The venue is fully accessible.

Code of Conduct
===============

MK.NET is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for our event attendees.

Please observe our group's code of conduct, which you can read in full here:

If you experience or witness unacceptable behaviour at our events, we provide an automated system to report and log problems. Please send a TXT message to[masked]. This will not add your number to a mailing list. The log is visible only to MK.NET organisers.

What's the plan?
================

Please aim to arrive between 8:30 and 9:00 on Sat 9th Nov. We'll provide a danish pastry and coffee. We're not planning to provide an extensive breakfast selection, so if this doesn't sound like it suits you, please arrange your own breakfast beforehand.

We'll make a start to the day with the opening "ceremony" at 9:00 - sharpish.

Between 9:15 and 10:00 we'll plan the rest of the day, as a group.

In true unconference style, we'll arrange a precise time for lunch, on the day. A basic lunch of sandwiches (meaty, veggie, vegan & GF) and soft drinks will be provided.

We'll aim to finish the day at around 17:00

How do I get to present a talk?
===============================

We'll welcome anyone the opportunity to present a talk (as long as it's loosely related to development - e.g. it could be a "soft talk" such a "better team communication" etc).

It's a perfect *supportive* environment for first-time speakers or those who feel uncomfortable talking in front of people.
