Workshops / Sessions

While this is an unconference and you are free to arrive with rough ideas. It is helpful to have some workshops planned and shared in advance.

See If you can please do add on to the workshops page here.

Other things we could cover:

"Free Software: A New Hope" - a operatic spectacular about the life of Richard M Stallman, the Obi Wan of the Free Software movement (although I feel he was probably a member of the Sith - RMS that is). (Mike would like to play Larry Wall if possible)
