Dogma Rules

WHAT
Local Rock Stars is a one-day conference.

WHEN & WHERE
November 30, 2017 from 10.00 – 16.00 at Stakladen, Aarhus University.

HOW
One keynote and 21+ talks in different tracks – all presentations by local Tech, UX, and QA Rock Stars.

MISSION
To share knowledge, and to show it-professionals and students the local career opportunities. We consider Local Rock Stars as a day of ‘free training’, including networking and technical debates.

WHY
The purpose of the event is to share knowledge and insights with it-professionals and students. Throughout the day, local based speakers, from small and large companies, will give presentations with professional breadth and depth. This offers competency-based learning for all participants. The day is a professional event, and not a marketing or sales event. We want you to take part in this one-day event to showcase some of the local projects consisting of high level expertise and professional challenges.

TARGET GROUP
Software developers, UX and interaction designers, QAs and testers, and students within these fields.

EXPECTED PARTICIPANTS
+300 (50/50 professionals and students).

THE PRICE FOR 20. MIN. SPEAKING SLOT: DKK 6000
(the event is free for participants)

WHY SHOULD COMPANIES PAY DKK 6000 FOR A 20 MIN. TALK?
Because you meet both professional and students and putting events up takes both time and resources. Everything is taken care of! The working group creates the programme, does the marketing, and is responsible for all logistics and event details (the budget breaks even, covering catering, and project management).
Exposure: Meet relevant students and potential future employees.
Employer branding: We encourage you to bring some of your employees to learn from other it-professionals.

DOGMA RULES

1. No sales pitches. This is a professional event, not a marketing or sales event. Make sure your talk is strictly technical, UX, or QA professional.

2. It is OK to tell the name of your company and use slides with logo once, but company presentations and anything similar are unacceptable.

3. All presentations should include at least one error you made, and what you learned from that error.

4. It is fine to use examples from services and products, but it is unacceptable to promote these.

5. All speakers must present in English and have their primary workplace in Jutland.
