Karrot Days 2022 - July 16th & 17th!

Dear Karrot community,

I’m pleased to announce that we’ll all have an opportunity to meet this summer. Save the date for Karrot days: July 16th & 17th 2022! :partying_face:

Karrot days is a free and open online-event, one weekend with various sessions to get to know each other, have a look at upcoming Karrot features and discuss about them together, chat about the funding we got and of course have a good time.

You’ll find any upcoming information in this forum thread.

Looking forward to meet you! :heart_decoration:
