Hallway track

In addition to the main conference room, there is dedicated space for an official “hallway track”. There you can chat with other users, show demos, work together, organize ad-hoc open space sessions, meet sponsor companies, and so on. This space can be used between the presentations, but it’s fine to use it also during presentations that aren’t so relevant for you.

Robot Framework Foundation

Robot Framework Foundation

RoboCon is organized by Robot Framework Foundation, a non-profit consortium that also sponsors the development of Robot Framework. Possible profits from the conference will be used for this purpose too.

We hope that companies using the framework consider becoming members and help us making the framework and the whole ecosystem better. Member companies also get 1, 2, 4 or 8 free conference tickets, depending on the paid membership fee.
