We've got a Sandbox🧪!
These are the minimum versions of major browsers currently supported by Indico. We try to target all modern browsers as much as possible, but only issues detected on those will be considered at critical level.
However, if you have an issue with a browser on this list, please feel free to open a bug report.
Indico is the result of the collective work of more than 100 different developers, translators and usability specialists of many nationalities. You can be the next one - read our Contribution Guide if you'd like to help out.
You don't need to know how to write code in order to help!
The full roadmap is available on the project site.
The main meeting points for the community are:
This software project was initially funded by the European Union's FP5 programme🇪🇺, in what was called the Integrated Digital Conferencing Project, or just InDiCo. CERN was responsible for the development of the "Make-a-Confererence" workpackage (inspired by an already existing system called CDS Agenda, also developed at the Organization) which would then become what we nowadays know as Indico.
We have since stopped using the
InDiCo acronym, as it no longer reflects accurately the nature of the project. The word Indico now has no particular meaning other than the product's name.
