By the Technical Community, For the Technical Community.

Accelerate project collaboration, influence technical decisions, build cross-project competence


We're returning to a virtual D&TF this February. It has been so great for those of us who were able to meet up in person, but with widespread travel restrictions we're meeting over Zoom again. At this point we know the drill: too late in APAC, too early on the US West Coast, but with all the collaborative strength we've built up through good times and bad. Kindness, capability, change – it what supports us as we once again roll up our sleeves for some concentrated time to make create, test, and build. This is what we do, because we love it, and because the global communications infrastructure depends on us. I can't wait to interact with you makers.    --Heather
