We will provide an opportunity for anyone to propose a session. This is to be a session they want to lead and not just one that they would like to attend. If there are more proposed sessions than available time the organisers will have the final say. Subject to numbers/interest there may be times when more than one session takes place at any time. All sessions are to be conducted in English.

Optimising mySQL queries
Accessibility Â– a checklist to building accessible extensions

Is it all work?
Absolutely not. Perhaps the most important part of a conference like this is the opportunity to meet the people behind the email address and forum avatar. As a result there will be many breaks during the day and no sessions arranged for the evenings. Easthampstead Park has an exquisite bar to relax in or if you prefer the conference room will be available for those who cant relax without their laptop.
Can I bring my partner
Yes. A separate cost for non attendeeÂ’s is available. This includes accommodation and meals but not the conference. Easthampstead Park is within 40 minutes train time to Central London and a taxi ride to Windsor Castle.
