The Drupal Unconference is coming up in November and we can’t wait! Following the huge success of last year's event, we are once again proud to be Silver Sponsors of this alternative annual conference.
As active members of the Drupal community, several of our team are already preparing lightning talks to pitch on the day. To secure attendance for the majority of our large Drupal team, we have just bought a batch of tickets. To avoid disappointment, we encourage you to do the same!
Co-organiser, Eli, on what to expect
This year’s Unconference will be held on 3rd November at The Federation, Manchester. The annual unconference breaks the mould, with an informal, accessible programme. All talks are planned on the day by the attendees rather than organisers. Representing open source ideals, Unconference recognises that the best ideas can come from anyone, no matter their experience. First-time speakers and long-term contributors have equal opportunity to share their insights into the Drupal Content Management System.
For the second year in a row, we are proudly sponsoring the event and attending en mass. Our developers are preparing talks on a wide range of topics: from front-end design using Pattern Lab, to a bold career change, swapping auto body repairs for Drupal development. The unplanned structure of the Unconference enables speeches that are reactive to recent topics and events. As such, we expect some competition for the most innovative talk this year!
Not sure what to talk about?
You can reach beyond Drupal core and open source code. Unconference presentations will address a wide range of digital topics. With talks and insights expected to cover UX, databases, frameworks, security and front-end design. Web developers, devops, project managers, designers and marketers can all expect relevant and actionable takeaways from the event. Website owners and end users, no matter their technical experience, are welcomed to the inclusive conversation.
Unlike Drupal sprints, which focus on delivering working software and contributed modules, the Unconference is designed to be a rich learning environment. Offering real-world case studies and ideas, NWDUG invite anyone to share their digital experiences.
Hosted at The Federation, the 2018 event will be bigger and better than ever. With more space comes more opportunities for different speakers and discussion groups.
Explore the Venue
Last year’s event was a huge success, so we are optimistic for Unconference 2018 to be the best yet. We are excited to see new faces and new innovations from the open source community.
Join the welcoming Drupal community this November 3rd for a day that celebrates inclusivity, accessibility and open source software.
