Community All-Hands Unconference FAQ

What is an unconference?

An unconference is an informal participant-driven meeting where dicussions and conversations are encouraged. Read more about what is an unconference on Wikipedia.

Eligible moderators/speakers for the sessions

Everyone is encouraged to submit a topic for the unconference. Due to its relaxed and casual format, this is also a great platform to start from as a new speaker. These unconference sessions will not be recorded to enable a respectful and save environment. However, each of the sessions will have Docker staff supervising that each session abides by the Docker Code of Conduct. Any attendee who disrespect it will be immediately expelled from the event.

Community All-Hands Unconference planning

  • People are encouraged to submit their topic proposals until August the 14th
  • The organization of the event will then reach out to the selected sessions and will provide the moderators with tips and instructions on how to develop their sessions
  • The final conference agenda will be published in August with the selected sessions for the unconference
  • Every session will have a public document where our community members are encouraged to write down their thoughts beforehand
  • Based on those ideas and their own thoughts, the moderator will put up a little script with topics to cover during the session
  • On September the 1st the event will happen. Every moderator will conduct their session and interact with their audience in the chat

CFP Notes

  • Sessions will be reviewed on a rolling basis
  • Be open to feedback on your submission. We’re constantly reimagining how we deliver content at our events. We might reach out to you in order to guide you towards the appropriate content track to work on your session details before we make it official.
