Welcome Message

We're excited to be back in person, rolling up our sleeves together, working on advancing our collective technical goals. This gathering represents a unique opportunity to address critical challenges, celebrate our accomplishments, and continue the dynamic conversations that make our projects flourish.

In this Developer & Testing Forum, you can anticipate a blend of plenary, multi-project, and individual project sessions. We encourage sessions that delve into specific releases, features, problems, or collaboration plans - these kinds of discussions have consistently yielded the most productive outcomes. 

To ensure uniformity in our presentations, we have prepared an LFN Technical Meetings PowerPoint Template which we encourage all presenters to use.

We understand that the commitment to attend an in-person event might require extra justification for some, so we've prepared a 'Convince Your Boss' page to assist you:

We're all aware of the circumstances surrounding international travel these days, but we have also heard your feedback on how essential in-person collaboration is for our communities. The safety of all attendees is our top priority, and we are closely monitoring health and travel advisories to ensure a safe and productive event for everyone.

The entire LFN staff and I are genuinely looking forward to seeing you all in Budapest in November. This event is an essential part of our joint effort to drive forward our ecosystem, and your presence will undoubtedly contribute to its success.

See you in Budapest!
