An OpenSpace conference for sharing ideas in creative design and web development

OpenSpace conferences follow a very small set of rules that allow people to interact with each other in a creative and productive way. Sessions are decided by the attendees when the event first starts, and are encouraged to move to a different session if they feel they are not getting enough out of their current session. Our goal for this conference is to have four concurrent sessions, with industry experts helping to drive conversation.
