Days until FunConference

FAQ's

Unconferences are unusual. There is no formal agenda, speeches or PowerPoint presentations. Instead everyone who is invited is expected to get involved and present on any topic of their choosing. You go to an unconference not as a delegate but as a participant. Collaboration is valued over hierarchy, discussions over statements. Known as an ‘un-conference’, crowd-sourcing determines the content of each event, which begins with an empty whiteboard to be filled by attendees with ideas for discussions. Everyone is expected to participate and contribute. Unconference’s were first inspired by Tim O’Reilly’s famous Foo Camp and later popularized by Yossi Vardi and Kinnernet. Foo Camp, an annual event hosted by Described as “the wiki of conferences” the attendees design and alter the program via big whiteboard schedules that allow for overwriting and rewriting. Unconferences are intended to reach out to people who can enhance the one another’s intelligence as well as open the door for opportunities and cross-fertilization between people, disciplines, etc. It’ll be intense, you’ll find yourself participating in endless fascinating sessions and accidental conversations – and of course hopefully leading at least one.
Funconference will be casual, with any attire acceptable from hiking clothes to jeans to wacky outfits. Some activities are outdoor, including workshops and weather permitting meals so ensure you have warm clothing and a waterproof coat. Attendees will be encouraged to participate in active sessions, so sports trainers and athletic gear is also recommended. Themed sessions and fancy dress details will be shared in advance of the event.
