Actual dates will depend upon your local time zone

Backdrop Live is a global event designed to support and sustain website owners, designers, and developers. Backdrop CMS is a powerful and flexible open source CMS that is relatively easy to use, and affordable to support and maintain. 

This event is designed to be highly interactive. It will consist mostly of conversations offering an opportunity share information, show off what you have been working on, share ideas and experiences, and ask important questions. Participants will help set the agenda by recommending topics during registration.

Backdrop LIVE will feature facilitated discussions, but also offer a few formal presentations and/or demonstrations. The event will be scheduled in 3 hour blocks over a 48 hour window of time. We hope to engage with people from around the world in an exciting and interactive format.
