What’s an UnConference?

Attendees scrambling to get their sessions up on the board

The big deal with UnConferences is that they’re participant-driven. Instead of having expensive keynote speakers and a bunch of sponsors filling up the schedule, we start with a blank canvas in the morning. The session board starts wide open with space across the available rooms for each 25 minute timeslot.

What happens in a session?


The sessions end up being filled with a wide variety of different styles. A high proportion of sessions are prepared talks where you guide the audience through a topic you know in detail. Another popular format is the panel or debate style session, either a small group of experts up the front discuss a topic or a more roundtable approach where everyone gets to discuss a topic of interest.

Some sessions mix it up into a combination of talk and discussion. Another common style is to do a demonstration of a cool technology, product or technique. You stand up the front and show people, generally on a laptop, what you find cool. We ask that sessions aim to be genuinely useful for the audience, so hold back on the salesy demos.

Finally there’s the outliers: the weird, the wacky and the fun sessions. As the day wears on, some odd things end up on the session board. One year we had two people doing the Google Analytics Individual Qualification test live on stage.
