Combating COVID-19 Conference: A Collaborative Arduino Community Initiative will take place today, April 2nd starting at 5pm CEST.

The online event will be streamed via Zoom. From 5:00 to 5:30pm, there will be only one streaming channel. After that, we’ll break out into two different rooms.

There are different ways to participate: presenting an Arduino-based solution to tackle COVID-19 (the call for projects is now closed), supporting other community projects, providing expert advice, or asking the Arduino team for some support.

The conference schedule is as follows:
