I sent the following proposal into the submission session. Past experience indicates that if you submit one session the probability of getting it accepted is pretty low but this one was accepted.
This year decided to volunteer and was happy to be accepted. Bottom line is that, as I got accepted as a speaker, I was put in as an “honorary volunteer”. Had a lot of fun meeting a bunch of folks from all around the world.
Also I enjoyed attending sessions that I probably wouldn't have been inclined to see and, must say, it was pretty amazing at what you could learn. The session on (for example) strong-style pairing offered some serious learning both in terms of how to present something in a workshop (hint: everyone has a smartphone - figure out a way to use it) and in terms of how to learn.
