Volla Community Days 2021

It's time for something new. Whether iPhone or Google Phone: A large number of apps and dependence on a cloud dominate. Simplicity and privacy look different. That's why we want to push the Volla Phone with its Volla OS and other alternatives and invite you to the third Volla Community Days on May 29-30. This year the motto is: Volla Next Level. Learn about the latest developments at Volla and from the community, contribute your questions and ideas, and help shape the future yourself in the hackathon. There will again be prizes for the best contributions.

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.
