ARRIVAL AND VOTING
Doors open at 8:00 am for late registration (if you didn't register online), check-in, coffee and early networking. First things first upon arrival -- register at the registration desk, which you'll see straight ahead as soon as you enter the doors. After registration, look through your welcome packet for details and directions.
Session selection is done in person, analog-style.Each registered attendee will be given four votes (adhesive dots) for the entire day’s programming. A program of the sessions (those submitted prior to 9/29/2018) will be included in your registration packet, which you will receive upon check-in at the registration desk.
We will be announcing the entire day’s session calendar after the plenary session and will have session information posted on room name boards.
Sessions are 35 minutes long with 10-minute breaks in between. If you want to switch sessions for any reasons, follow the “law of two feet.” If you’re in a session and it’s not what you thought it would be, or there are two sessions happening simultaneously and you want to catch a little bit of each, simply get up quietly and walk out. It isn’t rude—in fact, it’s encouraged. It’s your event—make it the most valuable experience for you.
Lunch is self-service and from 12:00PM – 12:50PM or while supplies last. This year lunch is provided by Brown Bag, featuring a Fajita Bar. We'll also have unsweet and sweet tea, lemonade, and brownies.
You’ll be learning a ton of great stuff and meeting all kinds of people. Take a moment to let everything soak in. But don’t take too long—you don’t want to miss anything.
Everyone will have the opportunity to unwind at the end of the day during Pendo’s After Party at Black Abbey Brewing Company, from 4:30pm to 6:30pm. Registered after party attendees will receive 2 free drink tickets and 1 free food ticket. Additional food and drink are available for purchase. This event is FREE, but you should register here if you'd like to snag the free food/beverages.
