Where will the participants work?

Following the format of the last two years, the 2022 Webfest will be held online. There will be plenty of opportunities for interaction, both between participants and with the various technical experts (mentors) taking part in the event.

What tools will the participants use?

The Webfest encourages all participants to open source anything that is created and built during the Webfest.

Teams will work independently, coming together at specified dates over July and August - through platforms such as Zoom, Mattermost and Remotely Green - with all sessions and platforms coordinated through the custom Webfest app.

Presentations and winners

The event will wrap up on Tuesday 30th August, starting at 16:00 CEST, with a one-minute video presentation prepared by each of the teams. Winners will be announced on the next day - Wednesday 31st August at 17:00 CEST.
