🎆 Let's start 2020 with a bang! 🎆
The dotnet.amsterdam un-conference!
What is an un-conference?
An un-conference is one of the most enjoyable, engaging, and effective events you’ll ever participate in. The dotnet.amsterdam un-conference is a conference organized around the theme Microsoft.NET, but without pre-planned agenda items.
Topics can range from learning what's new in C# 8.0, Blazor, functional programming with F#, unit testing, etc. anything in some way related to Microsoft.NET that you and other participants are interested in.
The open agenda allows for innovation, sharing, and collaboration in ways not available at a regular conference and will enable participants to learn great things from each other throughout the day. You don't need to be an expert in a topic to create a session, you just need to have an interest in the subject and be willing to start the discussion. Together with the other attendees to the agenda slot, you will dive into the topic and learn and experiment with it.
The rules of an un-conference are simple:
Rule #1: Whoever shows up are the right people
Rule #2: Whatever happens is fine
Rule #3: Whenever it starts is the right time
Rule #4: It is over when it’s over
In less flowery language, this just means ditch expectation and don’t try to control the experience.
The Law of Two Feet
Everyone at an un-conference is encouraged to practice the law of two feet. The law of two feet says that if you become uninterested at any point, you are encouraged to leave and join another session. In an un-conference, you are also invited to take breaks at any time, with the idea that it is sometimes in the breaks that the ‘A-ha’ moments arrive.
