This is generated by clicking the “Rookie Speaker” checkbox on the session submission form. We wish these Rookie Speaker sessions well during the voting season.

  • What is the Premiering Content checkbox on the session submission form?

    By checking the “Premiering Content” box a speaker is willing to debut original content at the DynamicsCon Sept. event! We encourage all speakers to consider creating new session material to share with the community for the first time during our upcoming virtual conference.

  • What if I didn’t receive a confirmation email?

  • How are votes calculated?

    1. Select top voted session per speaker (removing duplicates inside and across tracks)​

    2. Break down sessions by track ​

    3. Review top 12 sessions per track for Rookie vs. Veteran status ​

    4. Result for 60 total sessions ​

    – If 12 sessions (20%) are Rookie Speaker sessions no further action ​

    – If 11 sessions or less are Rookie Speaker sessions, we will add in the next highest voted Rookie session (regardless of track). The Rookie Speaker session will replace the Veteran session with the lowest votes within the same track.

  • Should I use the votes displayed on the website as the final determiner of my session's selection?

    No, votes displayed on the website are not final and should not be used as your final session determination. All votes are subject to review by the DUG Advisory Committee to ensure voting integrity and a minimum of 20% of the overall sessions for DynamicCon Sept. 2021 are hosted by Rookie Speakers.

  • Where/When will I see the final conference agenda?

    In the beginning of August, 2021 we will publish the conference agenda in Brella (event platform).

  • Where will I watch and participate in the virtual event?

    In the beginning of August, 2021 we will launch Brella, which is where you will watch, learn, network, engage, and connect into DynamicsCon leading up to and during the event on Sept. 20-21.

  • How do I ask questions during the event?

    We at DynamicsCon realize that one of the best parts of a conference is the interactive questions and answers between the presenters and the attendees.  That’s why we’ve made it a point to have a short (5-10 minutes) chunk after each session where the speaker can answer questions from the audience.  Within Brella, we are going to have an integrated chat located to the right of the session playing where the presenters (and sometimes a moderator) will monitor your questions.

    Questions that don’t get answered during the sessions will get posted to the respective products’ groups on https://dynamicsuser.net for additional follow up after the conference!

    If you want to participate in the chat, you’ll need to make sure you’ve registered and logged in to Brella.

  • How can I keep updated on everything DynamicsCon?

    We believe communication is our superpower in making this event the best at-home experience for you! We will be sending out regular emails to anyone that registered for the conference (please check your spam folder). If you have not received these messages, please email [email protected] to get your name on the recipient list. Don’t forget to also follow us on TwitterLinkedIn, and Facebook!

  • Where can I submit general feedback on the DynamicsCon event?
