Polyglot: knowing or using several languages. We hope to gather Edmonton software developers who will leave language, platform and possibly even editor wars behind and come together for a spontaneously organized day of amazing talks, round-table discussions, panel sessions, and coding. If you've never been to an unconference (or open-space) event before, you owe it to yourself to make it to Polyglot YEG. It's an experience like no other.
This event is inspired by the Polyglot Unconference in Vancouver.
Open-space unconferences are spontaneously scheduled and 100% attendee-driven. Sessions will be proposed and selected at the opening of the conference.
In the morning attendees can propose or request a session by filling out a provided sheet like so:
Sessions will then be selected by dot voting. PolyglotYEG gremlins will put together the schedule based on the votes.
Polyglot YEG is made possible by our generous sponsors.
