seL4 Developers Days

The first seL4 Developers' Day was held on 14 August, 2015 in the DC area, organised by DARPA. It was considered a success by all participants, and more Developer Days will happen in the future.

The seL4 Developers' Days are informal events, aimed at brining together and building the seL4 community. They are a forum where developers and users can share insights and advice. We provide tutorials, hands-on advice sessions and advanced topics for self-paced work.
