Welcome to the WebSphere Unconference topic forum. You—the developer—set the agenda by submitting topics you would like to present, voting on other topics you would like to hear discussed, and/or offering to give a lightning talk (five minute speech) on a topic that interests you.
The ideas will be collected here until Impact 2012 opens on Sunday, April 29. From April 29-May 1, you can continue to submit and vote on ideas in person, onsite at the Unconference booth in the Impact Solution Center.
The Unconference will be held on Wednesday, May 2, from 1:30 pm – 5:30 pm. There will be a kick-off starting at 1:30 with special speakers including Grady Booch, Research Scientist and IBM Fellow; Andrew Glover, software developer, entrepreneur, blogger (Disco Blog) and author; Greg Truty, IBM Distinguished Engineer, Application and Integration Middleware Software; and more.
Check out this short Unconference video on Youtube The agenda is yours!
To get started, browse the hot or new idea topics tab below, or choose a category from the list on the right. Then search to see if your idea has already been submitted. If it has not, submit it for others to consider and vote up.
If you want to present a 5 minute lightning talk, enter that below too. End your post with the word “Lightning”. If you get enough votes, you give the talk!
Additionally, publish a blog post on the Global WebSphere Community site about your Unconference topic idea by Feb 29 and you will be entered into a drawing to win a complimentary Impact 2012 pass.
