Choosing Your Workshops

We're very excited about the roster of workshops we have prepared for you, and we hope you are too. Each workshop has an intended audience and prerequisite knowledge, but they aren't necessarily lined up in specific tracks or in a sequential order. This gives you the freedom to choose which workshops interest you the most (as long as you meet the prerequisites), tailoring your OUTC20 workshop experience to what you need.

Please pay careful attention to the audience and prerequisites for each workshop. Some require a certain level of technical knowledge to follow along with the presentation. Other workshops provide a base-level introduction to concepts used in later workshops.

There are four audiences: Admin Beginner, Admin Advanced, Developer Beginner, and Developer Advanced. The audience of a workshop indicates what role the presentation is intended for. You are by no means required to limit your workshop choices to those where the audience matches your typical role, but remember that workshop content may be geared for a different difficulty level than where you are, depending on the skills needed. As always, check the workshop prerequisites to see what skill level the workshop will be run at.
