Booth Personnel


We need:

  • Electricity (floor plugs are available, just bring one more plug/extension cord with plugs to have enough - as we all love to plug-ins :)
  • Fully equipped and prepared talk rooms (Projector, and so on) (Agora venue team)
  • Stand Up Roller + the usual SWAG (Rgeri77)

Our Talks

  • Talks have been added to the schedule.
  • We have 25+5 minutes! Themes must be chosen carefully, since time runs out quickly!
  • English is not a blocker, but Hungarian is the preferred. If you plan to make a talk in a language other than Hungarian, please do it in English. Most of the audience talks English, since we will be in a IT University context.
