Hands on space

On the second day, the second track of the conference will be transformed into a Hands On Space - somewhere for people to put into practice the skills and technologies from their favourite talks, collaborate with other attendees, and get some personal in-depth tutorials from the experts.

There'll be tables for you to sit down and get stuck in, and we'll post a timetable of who you can expect to work with during each hour of the day, alongside the great talks in the main track.

Slots will be available to anyone who wants to take part - perhaps you'd like to give a face-to-face tutorial on your favourite framework, or show people how easy it is to contribute to your team's open source project? You don't have to pick a time now, but if you're interested, please contact us so we can keep you updated and answer any questions you might have.
