Optimizely Happy Hour EMEA

What is Happy Hour? In order to support and grow our partner ecosystem, we host a bi-monthly online technical meetup for Optimizely's technical community called the Optimizely Dev Happy Hour! The goal is to bring together the technical community, talk about Optimizely and anything else going on (non-Optimizely related) in order to share knowledge and get to know one another better. Nothing formal - just a relaxed environment and a place to ask questions, learn and share. This page will be updated regularly with some high level topics that will be covered.

This initiative started in North America as a temporary weekly series during the Covid-19 pandemic in order to generate a sense of community online. It was a great success and we decided to bring the series to EMEA. We look forward to many great sessions! Thank you to everyone that continues to join! Don't forget to download Kahoot app on your device! 

Below are the details.

Date: Friday February 24th, 2023
