At the end of five days — and after many development sprints, lots of collaboration, and a large amount of great Brazilian food — the team made three presentations to the BigBlueButton community.  Click on the images below to watch the presentation (recorded using BigBlueButton of course!).

We especially want to thank Blindside Networks for covering the costs of the summit and for the Mconf project for hosting this summit in Brazil.  Many of the developers from the Mconf team joined us for the week and helped accelerate the improvements to BigBlueButton.  At one point, we had almost seventeen developers working together.  Overall, it was our best summit yet!  Again, check out the above recordings for more details of the week’s activities.

The next BigBlueButton Developer Summit is planned for May 2015 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
