We did, perhaps a world first, unexpo at TestBash Brighton. This write up by Sarah is wonderful and describes so many of the ‘community feels’ we got from the experience. I really believe, with some tweaks and improvements we can expand on this idea and help make conferences what they should be about – learning AND connecting people. Hopefully now that people have an idea what an Unexpo is, it will become a bit easier to recruit people for the task.
We’ve done meetups, Lean Coffees, early morning runs, 99 second talks and now the Unexpos will hopefully become a regular event at some of our TestBashes.
