As part of the evolution of the CONNECT Code-A-Thons to address Community feedback, the Rochester event will begin with a plenary session. This session includes presentations about the latest developments in the CONNECT code and the future of the CONNECT architecture.

The event is limited to 200 participants, and spaces are available on a first come, first served basis. This is a coding event, so participants should be developers ready to roll up their sleeves and get to work! The event will be a hands-on working session where attendees and the CONNECT development team will have the chance to collaborate, share ideas and best practices.

Participants will have the opportunity to contribute to the CONNECT project through bug fixes, code contributions, improved documentation, and by contributing other innovations. We will be listing topics on the forums and we encourage discussions prior to the Code-A-Thon so we can get straight to the business of development during the event.
