Session Formats

With a variety of spaces available to us at the event venue, there will be different kinds of sessions at Basecamp:
  • Presentations are pre-arranged lectures and demonstrations by experts. Follow-along participation is optional.
  • Workshops involve smaller groups of people, are generally longer, and involve hands-on participation.
  • Activities are fully participatory sessions; there’s less talking and more doing. Maybe we’ll build something.
  • Unconference sessions are discussions and/or demonstrations that aren’t planned before the event.

Tentative Schedule

This part of our planning is far from concrete, but here’s what we’re thinking an agenda for the event might look like:
