    Federation House

    It's time again for the NWDUG Unconference and we thought it would be a good idea to post the information about the event here to make everyone on our meetup group aware. Tickets are on sale at https://ti.to/nwdug/2019-unconference! Where is the unconference? The unconference will be held at Federation House in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. Federation House Manchester M4 4BF When is the unconference? 12th October 2018, 9am - 5pm The unconference doesn’t end there! Once the scheduled proceedings are wrapped up, we will decamp to a nearby venue 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 and supporting subjects including databases, frameworks, security, UX, front-end development and design are also encouraged. Last year's topics ranged from front end issues such as Design Patterns, Performance Tuning with Lighthouse, and SASS, decoupled topics like JSON API and Gatsby, Decoupled Drupal & Gatsby, and Security and AWS. We also witnessed the live fix of a core issue by core committers, and a live accessibility audit. Community topics such as the Drupal Apprenticeship Scheme. Talks debuted in previous years at the unconference have subsequently been featured at events such Drupal Mountain Camp, Frontend United and Drupal Developer Days.
