Akademy is more than inspiring talks. It's also a place to plan, collaborate and get a lot of work done in BoFs and workshops.

This year, we have two special workshops that you won't want to miss.

The 4 days of Workshops & BoFs (Birds of a Feather sessions) are an important part of Akademy, where participants meet, discuss, work on projects and launch new initiatives.
