ONA17 workshop registration now open!

Registration is now open for our small workshops on inclusive hiring practices, building Alexa skill, and how to build a bot.

We try to accommodate as many people as possible in our conference sessions, but a few topics have specific space limitations that require an RSVP in advance. These are the only three workshops that require advanced registration at ONA17, so if you’re interested in attending one in particular, be sure to read the description to know what you’ll need to bring and then register at the links on each session page. An ONA17 badge is required, but the workshops are offered at no additional cost to attendees. Still need to register for the conference? You can do that here!

Some receptions and other social events may require an RSVP — they’re all marked on our schedule — and will open at a future date, so stay tuned!
