Volla Community Days 2021
There is a lot going on. Last year we could start crowdfunding on Kickstarter and Indiegogo. From the beginning, the community was there as supporters, beta testers, developers, translators, YouTubers, bloggers and great partners. We want to continue on this path. This year, we will hold the Volla Community Days as a live video broadcast with studio guests and parallel live chat. We were able to attract exciting speakers from our partners and the community for interviews, live demos and practical tips for everyday life.
Information about the live broadcast with internet address can be found on our event page.
