Keynote Speaker: Corey K.
Every year we have a keynote speaker share from his heart. They bring us back to a unification of purpose at work and purpose at heart. How and where our faith intersects with our occupations. This year's theme: Theology of Risk
We offer up to three workshops in each of six workshop sessions. That's 18 workshops!
These workshops are spread across five workshop tracks:
- Basic Technology
- Advanced Technology
- Web & App Development
- Leadership & Management
- Christian Growth
Birds of a Feather (BOF) Sessions
There are a lot of technical and management subjects that need attention, but not all of these can be planned as a workshop. Birds Of a Feather, or BOF sessions, bring people with similar interests together to meet and discuss these topics. The topics are agreed by the attendees on the first day of the conference and then the session times and locations are publicised.
- English Idiom: Birds of a feather flock together.
- Explanation: Just as bird species flock together, people with similar interests tend to congregate with one another.
These are a great way to kick off the event and get more out of our time together.
Usually, we have two workshops going at the same time. These are longer training and experiential sessions meant to give people more in-depth instruction and the opportunity to actually practice what they’re learning. However, for a variety of reasons, this year’s only pre-conference workshop is a Hackathon.
The TFM Contest (Technology For Missions) is a chance for you to share this past year’s successes, challenges and failures. This is an open-mic night style event where everyone is invited to get up and tell stories from the past year.
