Pre-Cons (Sep 8 & Sep 9)

Let’s start with Pre-Cons. How do the Round-The-Clock Pre-Cons run?

On Sep 8, 2021, Tuesday, Pre-Con classes will begin. There are three batches and each batch has four classes. First, let’s see the table below.

You will comprehend that:

  • Each batch has a different time slot.
  • Batch is a synonym to time slot – so to say.
  • For example, in Batch 1, EDT 03:00 AM to 07:00 AM = CEST 09:00 AM to 01:00 PM = IST 12:30 PM to 04:30 PM = AEST 05:00 PM to 09:00 PM. Likewise, for other batches.
  • Three batches, three time slots.
  • Each batch (time slot) has four classes that run in parallel.
  • Depending on your time zone, you can choose a batch/time slot most convenient to you.
  • Then choose a class scheduled under that batch/time slot.

Here is a quick legend that may help.

Most conducive to attend. Attend LIVE and get recordings too.

Moderately conducive to attend. Attend LIVE and get recordings too.

Least conducive to attend. Yet you can register and get the recordings.

 

But why four hours? Aren’t these Pre-Cons supposed to be eight hours? Yes, indeed. That is why you will notice the dates of Sep 8 & Sep 9. So, at DPS 2021, the Pre-Con classes will run four hours each day, for two consecutive days, Sep 8 & Sep 9. Our audience loved this format last year. In the virtual world, attending an 8-hr class at a stretch is a bit too much. So, we split this up and get two major benefits:

  • Benefit 1: Learning is not cramped into a single day and you have more time to grasp & stretch.
  • Benefit 2: You can balance your office work with the class, as you don’t have to take a full-day leave.

Obviously, we don’t need to give the legend to you. You know better what time works best for you. With the above legend and color coding, we have just tried to provide some indications. So, depending on which county you live in, calculate your time slot & evaluate which classes you wish to attend.

There are a couple of tips we can provide.

  • Tip 1: You can book two Pre-Cons that are running back-to-back if your time zone permits you.
  • Tip 2: You can book multiple Pre-Cons. Maybe you will attend one or two of them LIVE. For remaining, you can get the recordings. Our pricing is a STEAL.

Final Summary: Just evaluate your time zone and pick the classes you wish to attend LIVE & the ones you wish to get recordings for, then book your seat.

Important Notes

  • When you register for the conference (main event), you are registered for all six days. Feel free to attend whatever time works best for you.
  • While you may focus on a specific time zone & specific dates, do not ignore the fact that you can still attend other days when time slots are convenient to you. For example, if you reside in the Europe region and are focused on Sep 15 & 16, you can easily attend LIVE sessions on Sep 13 & 14 from 3 pm onwards until late evening.
  • You receive the recordings (streaming access) for all the content presented throughout the six days of the event.

Post-Cons (Sep 20 & 21)

DPS is being run by humans. We take a short break on Sunday to recover. And then we come back for Post-Cons on Sep 20 & 21.

Well, Post-Cons follow exactly the same model as Pre-Cons. So, if you have already read the Pre-Con section, you may skip the below reading. Just note that Post-Cons are on Sep 20 & 21.

On Sep 20, 2021, Monday, Post-Con classes will begin. There are three batches and each batch has four classes. First, let’s see the table below.
