Unconference Event needs your ideas!

Now this is going to be neat.   I've heard a few developers express interest that they want to have a panel-type discussion at the Summit.  A place where experts in the field can share tips and strategies that they've employed in their live applications.  Or engage in discussion with other like-minded developers about issues that matter to them.
