Postby McDanielCA » Thu Feb 25, 2010 7:41 pm

We are excited to announce the inaugural LDSTech Developers Conference, conveniently scheduled for the Thursday and Friday before general conference (April 1–2). It’s an opportunity to come to Church headquarters and learn about the tools and services available and how to get started on projects that interest you.

This conference is for those who want to use their talents to help the Church develop solutions that have the potential to benefit the whole Church and more.

For three years many individuals have been coming to LDSTech looking for a way to put their technical talents to work. They have put forward innovative ideas, discussed methods and solutions on the LDSTech forums, and worked as volunteers on Church-sponsored projects.

This has been an adventure for you, as well as for us. We have been humbled by your willingness to help in whatever way you can. We have been awed by your talent in the community.

As the community has grown, it has become apparent that you need better tools and processes to make the best use of your time. We now have these tools available. The main purpose of the LDSTech Developers Conference is to train you how to develop on Church-sponsored projects with these new tools. We’ll share our vision, show you the environment, and help you get started.

If you are interested in becoming part of this unique community, consider attending the LDSTech Developers Conference.

The 2010 LDSTech Developers Conference is quickly approaching. We are excited to engage with you on projects that, without your help, cannot be completed.
What projects will you be able to begin work on? There are over 20 projects that you can help with. If you’ve been frustrated with the lack of flexibility in scheduling recreation facilities, you can be part of the solution. If you’ve been wondering how you can access your local unit directory from your mobile device, you’ll be able to work on that too. And if you’ve been wondering why you can’t download more Church media for use in the meetinghouse libraries, you can contribute to a project addressing this specific problem.

Please join us. Learn more and register for the LDSTech Developers Conference.

I was wondering, if we were interested in perhaps helping or contributing ideas, but we were unable to attend the conference in UT... how would or could we get involved??

Thanks.
