The conference has 4 breakout workshop sessions with each workshop based on learning tracks based on real life application.

When looking at a particular track, you may see several workshops that occur on the same date and time. This just means that you have options! Feel free to plan to attend the workshop that you feel would best serve you.

Also, remember these tracks are just suggestions, you may certainly attend any of the workshops, even if they don’t quite fit the track you otherwise want to follow.
