Last year at the Summit, 38% of attendees were brand-new to Ed-Fi. This year we are already anticipating that we’ll have even more first-time attendees!

In addition to a number of sessions specifically geared for new attendees in mind, we also have the Technical Bootcamp which will kick off on Thursday. The bootcamp is a series of in-depth technical training sessions, designed to help you with a planned or current Ed-Fi implementation. If you are a technical resource for your organization you definitely won’t want to miss out on the Bootcamp, especially if you are just getting started with Ed-Fi.

The agenda is packed full of great content and if you’re new this might be a little overwhelming. Wondering where to start and which sessions will be the best use of your time? We’ve put together a handy Ed-Fi Rookie Playlist just for you. You can view the full agenda and registration information here.

See you in October!
