Developer Congress - November 29th - December 3rd, 2021



A Samvera Developer Congress is a week-long, un-conference style event in which developers and other technologists come together, in person or virtually, to work on Community code and documentation projects. Technologists at all levels are welcome to participate, and a Developer Congress is a great way to learn from experienced Samverans.

In this wiki, you will find information on dates and meeting times, a place to propose topics and see what others are proposing, and support information on successfully using remote technologies for collaboration. If you have any questions not answered here, feel free to contact anyone in the Planning Group directly or ask your question in the developer-congress Slack channel.

To help us plan, please indicate your intention to attend by signing up in the list to the right.

We look forward to seeing you and working together to move our community development forward.
