KScope Advice

So I'll be attending Kscope for the first time this month. I'm slated to be there from the 26th to the 28th and I'm trying to figure out how to make the most of my time while I'm there. I have the link to the Kscope agenda http://kscope17.com/images/ODTUG-Kscope17-Digital-SAG.pdf and from what I can tell there will be conference rooms divided up among all of the speakers, with each session being split between the conference rooms.

How does the registration work? Do you pick a conference room that seems like it's going to have topics that interest you and then sign up for that conference room? Can you move between conference rooms as you please? What would be the best way to make the most of my time at Kscope for the days that I'm there? Any advice or input would be greatly appreciated.

You don't need to sign up for a conference room, and you can move around as you please.

Picking sessions can be tricky.

I generally look all of the sessions in each time slot, put on "x" on sessions that I'm not interested in at all, circle the ones I'm genuinely interested in attending, then make a decision.

When I can't decide, I preview the slides in the online app to get a better idea of what the session will cover. If you have to miss a session that you really wanted to attend, more often than not, the presenters put their email addresses in the slide deck, and are willing to answer questions (should you have any).

Download the mobile app. It will help you create your schedule and manage it on the fly throughout the day.

Do people show up casual or business casual for this?

Either is fine, as far as men's attire goes, about half are business casual, the other half are in nice jeans and a button down shirt. Some people will wear shorts on travel days.

Be prepared for cold meeting rooms. Also consider a dip in the pool, maybe a cocktail hour or nice dinner.

In other words, make sure to balance your dense/sparse dress accordingly. A dense restructure might be required in the evenings. You may need to merge slices (mixed metaphor) when you get back to your room.
