202 Sessions are advanced learning courses led by thought leaders and innovative practitioners. These sessions include high-level instruction that goes beyond that of a typical breakout session. 202 Sessions are longer—typically lasting three to four hours—and more in-depth; they're geared toward professionals who already know the basics. The courses are much more personal than breakout sessions, and are hands-on and interactive.
Prices increase to $175 for members and $225 non-members after March 31, 2017.
