Morning Unconference
Apr 5 @ 08:00 AM – 08:50 AM

What’s an Unconference? It’s an unconventional conference within the VWBPE conference! We use Twitter and local chat to engage in dialogue about the topics that were discussed the previous day. Watch this space for topic updates and hashtags – updated Thursday evening – then join us on the Social Plaza and / or on Twitter and help us unpack what we have learned so far.

Unconference rules:
Rule 1: Whoever shows up are the right people
Rule 2: Whatever happens is fine
Rule 3: Whenever it starts is the right time
Rule 4: It is over when it’s over
