I have attended a few unconferences before and left feeling disappointed. I was skeptical going into the day. Of course, I should not have worried. The morning started off like the rest with DEN SPEAKS (a five minute passion filled keynote) from Karen Ogen was and Tim Childers.
After DEN SPEAKS, we headed out to the 1st of 6 unconferences. Two minutes into the first one I realized that this unconference was going to be different from the others. People were passionate about sharing. For the most part, the groups were small which allowed for powerful conversations.

Maker fair, circuits, 3-d printer

Passion projects and Genius hour
After the sessions I was exhausted but I was also ready to have a conference call with my team and my principal because I was so ready to share and brainstorm about the upcoming year.
