2018 Nonprofit Software Development Summit

Event Date(s): 
November 14, 2018 to November 16, 2018

Dev Summit friends and family Our 15th annual Nonprofit Software Development Summit was held 14-16 November, 2018, at Preservation Park, Oakland.

The collaborative three-day gathering was 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.

A co-created agenda

The agenda was a diverse collection of discussions and interactive sessions developed in collaboration with participants. We employ an interactive and participatory approach to convenings, and work to specifically address the outcomes that will be most useful and relevant to everyone who attends.

All present were invited to bring their stories, ideas, questions, and knowledge to share.
