To help us gauge the popularity of sessions, make final room assignments, and prevent overcrowding, we are asking everyone to take a moment to build your personal schedule via SCHED. The more participation we have among pre-event schedule builders the less chance session rooms will be standing room only.
To get started, please head to the schedule site and signup (or login if you already have an account). After logging in, peruse the schedule and when you see a session you’re interested in attending, simply click on the white circle next to the title. This will automatically add the session to your own personal schedule.
Lastly, for easy access back to your schedule on your phone, bookmark or add the mobile agenda to your home screen with this link.
