Thank you to all who submitted talk ideas and remember to save them for next year. We always need burning ideas and with competition like this, your talk could be up there next time!
For the others looking to help out, there is always room for more hands-on volunteers on the night of the event. If this sounds like your thing, head to our volunteer page and sign-up! We will be having a Volunteer Meetup Night (TONIGHT) August 22nd, so try and make it out to meet our volunteer coordinator and the others helping out. If you can’t quite make it, go ahead and sign up anyway and we’ll be in touch.
Looks like another fantastic session, we’ll see you there!
