Description

When is the unconference?

4th November 2017, 9am - 5pm

The unconference doesn’t end there! Once the scheduled proceedings are wrapped up, we will decamp to a bar to eat, drink and be merry; some of the most important discussions take place during this part of the day. Keep an eye out for more news about the social venue.


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. Supporting subjects including databases, frameworks, security, UX, front-end development and design are also encouraged. The format of the session is up to you, but you can give a presentation, run a Q&A or even hold a pannel discussion. Last year’s topics ranged from practical talks on debugging and code reviews, demonstrations of new contributed Drupal modules, genetic algorithms, the history of encryption and off line capable websites incorporating service workers.

Some talks that debuted at the 2016 unconference went on to be featured at events such Drupal Mountain Camp in Switzerland and Frontend United in Greece.


About The Group

The North West Drupal User Group is a non-profit organisation which organises regular events in Manchester to promote the Drupal open source software. They seek to educate professionals and enthusiasts alike in new developments within Drupal and supporting technologies.

The group has been growing since its inception in 2006 and currently has 83 active members in its dedicated Slack channel, 200 registered members on meetup.com and 400 followers on twitter.

The group has historically organised monthly talks from both local and international speakers, with experience ranging from expert to first time speakers. It has also organised code sprints, supervising developers contributing back to the Drupal ecosystem and camp events comprising over 200 attendees.

In 2016 the group ran its first unconference in order to distinguish itself from the growing number of Drupal camp events. In 2017 we seek to build on last year’s success, to continue with the unconference theme and make things bigger and better.
