If you've never participated in an unconference the basic idea is that at a conference the attention is on the stage, at an unconference the attention is on the attendees. It reverses the arrangement and that's why its an 'un'-conference. In practice, what that means is that the most attendees bring a topic to share and register those topics in the morning while we're munching donuts and coffee. Then everyone votes on what they'd like to hear about and we follow the wisdom of the crowd (democracy in action, folks!). You're also very welcome to come and vote and listen and learn even if you're too shy to give a talk. 

Plan for your topics to be 15, 25, or 40 minutes. We've going to group the talks by skill level as well, so we're sure to deliver information at the speed the audience is already at.

Your ticket will also include lunch, provided in Room A, where you can also interact with our sponsors (and maybe find a new job).

We're going to wrap the day with a panel discussion on Dev Life in Kentucky. And hometown hero Todd Willey will present a keynote for all to enjoy.
