2017 Nonprofit Software Development Summit

Dev Summit Our 14th annual Nonprofit Software Development Summit will be held 15-17 November, 2017, at Preservation Park. This collaborative three-day gathering is designed for everyone from grassroots activists to software developers, bringing together participants from around the world to share knowledge, build relationships, and collectively envision the future of free and open technology to support social change.

The agenda will be developed in collaboration with confirmed participants in the time leading up to and during the event. We employ an interactive and participatory approach to convenings, and work to specifically address the outcomes that will be most useful and relevant to each participant.

To get a sense of what the event will be like, you can check out the 2016 agenda and session notes which were co-designed with participants, as well as report-outs from Srishti Sethi, Rainey Reitman, and Fabulous Dirk Slater, plus great posts on How To Give A Digital Security Training and Digital Security Training Resources for Security Trainers.

Gunner and the Aspiration team have been an incredible inspiration and resource for us at OpenNews. Our organization would not be the same without the open approach that Aspiration and Gunner model so well, and their ongoing coaching and support as our programs evolve. Thanks!
