uncodebar 3

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 09:30 to 17:30

uncodebar, the codebar unconference is back! Now in it's third year, uncodebar is our one day event that encourages codebar coaches to come together, share knowledge, and strengthen the community that supports our workshops.

What is this?

uncodebar is an unconference, a loosely structured open space type event emphasizing the informal exchange of information and ideas between participants. We're not putting out a Call For Papers or planning any of the content in advance. In order for this day to be successful, we're counting on YOU to make some amazing sessions happen. This is a 100% participant-driven event: we're going to suggest times and spaces, and in the morning, you'll pitch sessions and snag slots on the schedule.

What kinds of sessions should I prepare?

As this is an unconference, you can decide what type of session you want to run: workshops, talks, discussions, etc are all welcome. Topics can include anything related to web development, software development, game development, learning, mentoring, community, and many more. It would be awesome to have sessions related to any of those -- last year we had sessions ranging from an ‘Intro to Elm’ to ‘Typography for Developers’. We talked about ‘Building Inclusive Teams’ and ‘Apprenticeships and Software Craftsmanship’. We got an ‘Intro to Docker’ and saw a demonstration on how to build ‘IOT Puzzle Gadgets using LISP’. But, if you really want to pitch a session on something else entirely, you're more than welcome to. This event is what we make of it -- the organisers will just be present to make sure you're engaged, entertained, well-fed and well-watered.

This event is primarily aimed at our coaches but students are welcome as well. We would especially like to see sessions from students. If you have an idea for a session but need help developing it, feel free to get in touch with any of the codebar organisers.

All attendees are welcome to join the #uncodebar channel in the codebar Slack to discuss potential sessions and session ideas.
