Conferences and Other Events

Snowdrift.coop participates in various events associated with our mission and work.

Currently, our Communications section includes a list of conferences. Here we will discuss specifics about events we plan to attend and information about them in more detail.

Note that we have started organizing some local meetups, first in Portland where lead developer Bryan Richter and co-founder Aaron Wolf are. For that, we have a Portland email list. We will work to better structure such events there and elsewhere in the future.
