Cancon Sessions: What they all mean.

Here's a run down on all the sessions I will be running at Cancon, along with what they are all about, and some pics of the projects. You can still book into sessions here. Some spaces will be available on the day, but as you can appreciate, I cannot bring all the materials from Melbourne to run ten people through each session, so extra spaces are going to be limited, unless you bring the materials with you.

All the way from Ishoo Nin, please welcome: the bunker!
