Workshops2
ICCM Workshops are scheduled so that you can choose the subjects most relevant to your needs. The schedule is still being ironed out, but last year there were twelve workshops running parallel on two tracks. Unless you’ve mastered the art of being in two places at once, you’ll have to choose wisely. Currently, we’re planning five types of workshops: Basic Technology, Advanced Technology, Web & App Development, Leadership & Management, and Christian Growth.

Also, remember that much of the programme is built around BOFs (Birds Of a Feather). BOFs allow attendees to get together for subjects more naturally suited to their interests, needs, and occupations. Topics for BOFs are determined during a BOF voting period the first day of the conference.

The 2018 Workshops

We’re still developing the schedule for the 10th annual ICCM-Europe. The schedule will be similar to 2017, but there will be a completely new assortment of topics and speakers.

Here are this year’s potential workshops. They’ll be worked into the schedule when we have this list complete and confirmed.

Basic Tech

Server Backup with Duplicati

As a systems’ administrator, you will become the hero of the day if your organisation goes through a major data disaster and you where the one to configure the backup properly. Likewise if not :-(.

Backup is not rocket science, but there are a few things that help you get the job done efficiently. I’m going to give a brief general introduction to data backup, and then go through the process of installing and configuring the Duplicati backup software.

Leadership & Management

Group Discussions using the Six Thinking Hats Method

The premise of the method is that the human brain thinks in a number of distinct ways which can be deliberately challenged, and hence planned for use in a structured way allowing one to develop tactics for thinking about particular issues. The author of the method identified six distinct directions in which the brain can be challenged. We will present ways that may be useful for your ministry to push group discussion members to think differently as usually.

Christian Growth

40 Days of Decrease

The Lenten season serves as a reminder of Christ’s sacrifice for us. Often we sacrifice something that is marginal, but lack the intentional increase in our relationship with Christ. We will explore ways to draw closer to God during Lent or any other time of year.

No More Faking Fine

The Christian life can be tough, and yet our outward response is normally, “Everything is good.” How can we make that statement true, even in times of trials? How can we share our trials, be open, and work together as a community of believers to ensure that we find joy in the midst of the suck?
