Track: Xtra(ck)

Always nice to have a little Xtra fun!  We admit it: we have a kick-ass program. But Øredev also arranges all the parts that let you enjoy, re-energize, even relax while you learn. It also makes for better, easier network building. This year we boost the fun with a bonus activities track – the Xtra(ck) – running in parallel.

At 11h00 on thursday you can get your heart pumping a little and clear your head with a 5 km run. If you needed motivation: the first one finishing will win a BIG thing! Enjoy a quick trot around town, ending at the Kallbadhuset, where you can have a shower, sauna, dip in the ocean, and lunch. Then we'll take a bus back to the venue for more action.

Photo walk!

Provided it’s not pouring rain, we’ll go on a mini photo tour of  the beautiful area around the conference. If it’s dark, the workshop will cover night photography. Either way, there will be some kind of assignment to capture a specific object, color, concept, or feeling. You’ll be hunting for this thing (or things) during the first hour, and when we get back to the conference area, we’ll go through the results, discussing difficulties and triumphs.
