Working Groups

These sessions are intended to get developers with common areas of interest or specific projects in mind together for collaboration and hacking. They might involve prepared presentations, structured code reading, or a notebook-assisted whiteboard session. These are suggestions: we will determine the set of working groups interactively at the beginning of the summit.
