Developer Summit

BigBlueButton Summit VII: Porto Alegre, Brazil

We just returned back from another great developer summit in Porto Alegre, Brazil. This was our seventh developer summit. The BigBlueButton project holds developer summits every six months to bring the core developers and committers together to review and coordinate development on the project, do code sprints, and enjoy some good meals and company together.

The project has come a long way from it’s first developer summit. Now that we have released BigBlueButton 1.0-beta, looking back to previous summits, we can see how the earlier planning helped us to reach this milestone. At this summit we had the largest number of developers (19 in total) working together on the project.
