Mmmm… Food

I wanted to make sure we highlighted this vital part of the schedule. 🙂 prpl is delighted to be able provide food and refreshments at the OpenWrt Summit. In particular, we will be provide light snacks, tea, coffee and soda both in the morning and afternoon. Additionally, we’ll be providing lunch to attendees. We’re hoping that lunch provides an opportunity for networking and collaboration.

Finally, we’ll build off that collaboration by having a social event at 6:30 at Harbourmaster. Drinks, including non-alcoholic, and hors d’oerves will be provided. We encourage every attendee to get to know other attendees, network and discuss ways to collaborate going forward.
