Where can I find the schedule of events for SkillCon?
We admit it – we have too much going on. Events overlap and are in multiple venues and it’s all very confusing. We’re doing our best to present the event schedule in a variety of different ways to anticipate everyone’s unique search styles. You can go the linear route with our schedule overview, or you can filter your preferences in our detailed calendar. If you’re mainly interested in one specific skill, you can search for all the events related to that skill in the “Skill” menu. If you’re more familiar with the organization that’s running the events you are interested in, you can find all of the organizer’s events under the “Organizers” menu.
There’s two really cool features you should be aware of. On any individual event page, you can add that event right to your google calendar. If you pull up a schedule using the detailed event calendar and customize to your preferences using the filters, you can export the results and then add all the filtered results to your personal calendar as well.
Whew – we hope that helps. If there’s a different way that would make it easier for you to find the events you’re looking for or a better way to organize the events so you can create your own customized schedule, please let us know 🙂
Where can I get free tickets?
Many events at SkillCon are free to the public. If the event you want to watch is free, the event page will specify that it’s a free event to the public and an option to RSVP will be available in the right side bar. We’ll put together a page that highlights the free spectator events you don’t want to miss soon.
Other events such as seminars, workshops, and competitions may require a registration fee which is handled by the individual event organizers for their specific events. Registration details can be found on the event organizer pages and within the event pages.
