We are a young community, still defining who we are and our shared culture and goals. Open edX 2016 is an opportunity to get to know each other beyond our code and work. We are finding new ways to collaborate, directions for the project, and how to shape our work. With years of experience in supporting, developing, and growing communities, Jono will add a new perspective to this conversation and to our understanding of the potential and power of a great community.

Register today to join us at Stanford this June!
