:mega: Community, we have been busy working behind the scenes to bring back our flagship event, and it’s my pleasure to announce our plans for the (In Person) PX4 Developer Summit 2022.

It seems like the first #PX4DevSummit in Zurich was only yesterday, but two whole years have passed, and it’s about time we get together to celebrate all of our achievements as a (really big) family!

We are bringing the show to beautiful Austin, Texas, on June 23 & 24, hosted at the JW Marriott, joined by other communities from the Embedded Linux Conference and the Open Source Summit. We are sure to have a lot going with thousands of developers from the broader open-source community.

We still have many more details to unveil (stay tuned), but please mark your calendars for now. We promise a great time, with lots to learn and way more networking opportunities.
