The Chilli Scale

What the little red Chillis mean on some sessions.

This year we have introduced a "Chilli Scale" to the sessions on the agenda. This works in a similar fashion to the Chilli Scale you sometimes see in Asian restaurants to indicate how spicy a dish is, but in this case it is used to help delegates assess the level of technical complexity of the subject matter and therefore how much, if any, previous knowledge is required.

The levels are; -  

 No chillis

 Non technical

 No previous experience necessary

 One chilli

 Slightly technical

 Some knowledge of the subject area helpful but not necessary

 Two chillis

 Moderately technical

 Some knowledge of the subject area necessary

 Three chillis

 Highly technical

 A reasonable previous knowledge of the subject area preferred
