Xerte Conference 2016

The Xerte Project is pleased to announce its 2016 conference returning to the UK this year and to be held at the University of Nottingham on 14th April 2016.

The last twelve months have been the most exciting in the history of the project, with our transition to the Apereo Foundation, the release of v3.0 and then v3.1 of Xerte Online Toolkits and the continued growth of our fantastic global community of users and developers.

This event will provide an opportunity to hear about the very latest developments and future plans from the project team and to learn more about the Apereo Foundation and the exciting opportunities it brings.

We'd also like to showcase the fantastic work that we see going on in our user community and are inviting proposals for inclusion in a really exciting programme for the day.

Submit your proposal here:http://goo.gl/forms/A4o3rNglqP 


We're going to provide three strands of presentations to suit everyone from the newest users to the technical wizards, and we already have some fantastic speakers lined up. The programme will evolve between now and the actual event but topics will include Accessibility, Learning Design, Workflows, Collaboration, Student generated content, Digital Storytelling, Complementary tools & techniques, Templates and Customisation and of course news of all the latest features and developments!

Full programme details will be continually updated and available here: http://xot.xerte.org.uk/play.php?template_id=1 

Fees & Booking:

There is a fee to attend this year but after conference fees any remaining funds will contribute towards further Xerte developments and community support.

Early-bird prices for the first 50 tickets sold are now on sale but will disappear fast. Numbers for the event are also limited, so book your place now! http://xerteconference2016.eventbrite.com/?aff=xertelist   

Developer day 15th April:

If you'd like to get actively involved in helping to develop and improve one of the most innovative and exciting open-source projects, the main conference will be followed by a day-long meeting of the existing development team and anyone new who wishes to contribute. This second day on the 15th will be free to attend. Contact us or indicate on the booking form if you are interested in attending on the 15th and joining our developer and contributor community.

We look forward to seeing you on the 14th April!
