When, Where, and What is FreeTech?

When: Wednesday, 11:00am – 6:00pm and Thursday, 8:45am – 2:20pm

Where: Valley Room

What: SuggestedSessions


FreeTech is an “unconference” — where anyone with a FreeTech badge can share knowledge and join in open discussions with the community at large.


This community-driven style of event is designed to share and improve essential skills required to participate in collaborative and innovative projects. The event features a mix of educational presentations and hands-on coaching from experts in participatory communities.


This is a free event for the community, so you can choose your level of participation — just listen, actively participate, or present your own discussion, topic or participatory game (see SuggestedSessions )
