These will be held in the auditorium, and we’ll set up a number of broadcast areas in the room. Please go to those areas to speak.
We will send further announcements on Slack nearer the time.
The sponsors (e.g., Google, Microsoft) will hold sessions for students to go and talk to. These will be announced on the slack channel.
