Like being there.
Eventer puts presenters and presentations together to create an
experience that's as close to being there as possible.
In most disciplines built on skill and knowledge, from art to architecture, from creative writing to structural engineering, there is a strong emphasis on studying existing work. Exemplary pieces from past and present are examined and discussed in order to provoke thinking and learn techniques for the present and the future. Although programming is a discipline with a very large canon of existing work to draw from, the only code most programmers read is the code they maintain. They rarely look outside the code directly affecting their work. This talk examines some examples of code that are interesting because of historical significance, profound concepts, impressive technique, exemplary style or just sheer geekiness.
The main theme of Ci2012 is:
WICKED PROBLEMS, GREAT OPPORTUNITIES!
Leadership and courage for volatile times
Eric Knight in his new book Reframe says: “Wicked problems have no stopping rules. They are the product of an increasingly complex, interconnected world.”
This theme will be addressed at the personal, organisational and global level across the major sectors of business, industry, community and government. Sessions will allow delegates the opportunity to expand their scope of creative understanding and learn new strategies whilst also leveraging their innate, but sometimes hidden, right-brained creative capabilities. Artists in residence will create moments of non-verbal content that help to change traditional mindsets.
Using innovative audience interaction the sessions will provide an exchange between presenter and audience. The one way communication presentation style that stifles many conferences will be transformed by world class dialogues, facilitators, performers, provocateurs and “hot spot” debate centres.
The theme will also facilitate Deep Conversations around important and challenging issues we face.
