Developer Congress - Solar Vortex - January 2020

Join us for Solar Vortex - the Samvera Developers Congress from January 22nd - January 24th at UC San Diego.

The focus will largely be determined by the group that attends. As an open invite event, we expect people to work on the collaborations that are most compelling for them. We know there is a group that is interested in focusing on Valkyrie and Wings work.

We’re limiting the size of the group to 30 attendees. Interested in joining? Sign up here:
