Our 17th annual Nonprofit Software Development Summit took place 18-20 November, 2020. The event was hosted online, with as little fealty to surveilling corporate overlords as we could possibly cede.
Our collaborative annual gathering included 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 included a diverse collection of discussions and interactive sessions developed in collaboration with participants. We employed a virtual version of our interactive and participatory approach to convenings, and worked to specifically address the outcomes highlighted as most useful and relevant to those in attendance.
