There is nothing keeping anyone from attending multiple tracks, and indeed we are encouraging attendees to move around and discover new things!

Please note that the table of session times below is not to scale. If there is a blank space under a session, it most likely corresponds to the session above it. The schedule is subject to change, and an up-to-date schedule will be posted at the event.
