    • Splitting Developers Session into two separate meetings:
      • MOBILE DEVELOPERS SESSION - This meeting gives campuses and units an opportunity to discuss issues they're having and showcase new tools they've built. It is open both to UCLA units and units at other institutions using the MWF. We will also provide an update about the state of the framework itself, namely any new releases that have occurred and any changes to the roadmap, but the discussion will stay light on framework internals. This meeting is thus geared towards framework users.
      • MWF CORE DEVELOPERS SESSION - This meeting focuses on core framework development, rather than on usage of the framework. In this context, it will provide an opportunity for updates on features currently under scoping and/or development, as well as current technical issues and planning for future features.
    • Schedule through the end of the year is as follows:
      • MOBILE DEVELOPERS SESSION - 28 OCT, 18 NOV, 9 DEC [2:00-3:30]
      • MWF CORE DEVELOPERS SESSION - 4 NOV, 2 DEC, 16 DEC [2:00-3:00]
    • Offered in person at UCLA in MS 5919
    • Open to any service or content provider remotely via conference line and Elluminate screen sharing
