What did you like the most about the event ❤️ ?

Variety of highly qualified speakers in their specialties and easy access to the event

Community Member, submitted through the post event survey.

There were many speakers with deep knowledge of what they were presenting. I surely learned a lot just watching their presentations. And the list of presentations with automatic adjustment for other timezones in the Sched website was fantastic.

🗞 News during the summit

Here’s what some of our members had to say during the summit.

🎉 After Party

The not-so-secret after-party was held as promised, we were joined by more than 20 community members (🐶 and at least four dogs). It was the perfect way to end the Summit, chatting with friends and sharing PX4 stories.

👀 See you soon.

We are excited about the PX4 Developer Summit 2021. We are hoping to host the event at ETH Zurich again next year. We will have more news as soon as the global situation calms down, and once travel restrictions have been lifted.

We want to bring you the best of both events and will be looking at more opportunities for the community to get access to the Developer Summit in the future.

👏 Thank you, Sponsors & Partners

This event was made possible thanks to the enormous support from our Sponsors and Partners.
