SoCraTes UK, the International Software Craftsmanship retreat follows the open space format for conferences. Open space is a simple methodology for self-organizing conference tracks. It relies on participation by people who have a passion for the topics to be discussed. There is no preplanned list of topics, only time slots and a space in the main meeting room where interested participants propose topics and pick time slots. SoCraTes UK is totally community-focused. It is a great opportunity to speak to and code with many like-minded and talented software developers in a very relaxed and beautiful setting.
