What is an "unconference" you ask? Instead of organizers driving the conference content, the attendees drive the content. Attendees are encouraged to engage in organic, authentic discussions rather than presenters with power points droning on for hours (no offense to power points). And the best part, this conference is FREE OF CHARGE!
