London, Oslo, Sydney…Minneapolis.
PubConf is crashing Nomad World Pub on April 21 when a gaggle of humans tackle technical themes armed with nothing but their best attempts at humor.
Pick an esoteric topic, dissect that into 20 slides that automatically change every 15 seconds, sprinkle some shenanigans on top — and who knows what comes out?
“If you were to condense the best part of a week-long software conference into one weird evening then you have PubConf,” says local organizer Todd Gardner, who is willing to admit he only formed the event as “an overly elaborate scheme for people to buy me beer.”
If that’s not enough to compel you, there’s an improv battle for gluttons of punishment who want to take the stage and “bullshit their way through a blind deck.”
This is PubConf’s fifth appearance and a first for Minneapolis before taking off again to Oslo, Sydney and Kansas City to round out the 2017 tour. Godspeed.
