Pitch schedule


What is a project day?

The Open edX conference projectday is an opportunity to work alongside other community members in person, starting new projects, collaborating on preexisting ones, and trying out ideas related to the platform and community.

More important than seeing a big project through from start to finish, the project day will provide us with the rare opportunity to sit next to people from all over the world who are interested in and passionate about the same stuff we’re working on. Since we all have this time separate from our usual work, we can experiment, try new things, finish small projects, and have some fun.

You don't have to know how to code! The project day is for everyone attending the conference! Perhaps you’re interested in capturing video workflow on the wiki. Maybe you’d like to work on reviewing, or writing, translations of the platform and documentation. Past projects have focused on design, course building, documentation, analytics, feature and XBlocks development, creating tools, and just seeing what innovative things can be done with the platform.
