Hey - I help organize an unconference at UW called InfoCamp. It's for people in the Information Science and Technology fields to get together and share ideas. Since it's cross-discipline, we end up with really insightful conversations and learn about new techniques and trends for our practice.
As an unconference, attendees pitch session topics they want to discuss. It can be a question you want to ask, or an idea you want to share. There are prepared sessions with a slide deck, or panels of experts on a subject, or just open conversations.
I encourage you folks to consider joining us this year! It's a great opportunity to meet new people and practice public speaking. If you want to share your experience with Drupal or thoughts on web development, that would be fantastic!
