International Conference on Computing & Mission
6 – 9 February 2019
de Betteld, the Netherlands
Next year's location:
7021 HR Zelhem
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.
Pre-Conference Workshops give you an opportunity to delve deeper into a subject for several hours.
In 2018, we hosted two pre-conference workshops. One was leadership training and the other was our first hackathon. We try to keep these relevant and listen to feedback. We’ll announce the 2019 pre-conference workshops when we open registration in the fall.
Special Note: If you sign-up for one of these workshops you’ll be asked to arrive the night before so we can get started bright and early right after breakfast.
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.
