Please note the AMP Contributor summit is full and the application form has been closed.

The AMP Contributor Summit

The AMP Contributor Summit 2018 will take place at Google in Mountain View, California on September 25 and 26, 2018.

We will also hold an optional one-day introduction and ramp-up workshop on Monday, September 24th for those who are new to contributing to the project.

This free summit brings together developers from around the world who have contributed--or who are interested in contributing--to the AMP open source project.

If you have contributed to AMP or you are interested in contributing to AMP, please consider applying!

Location

The final day of the summit will start in Google Building CL5, 1500 Crittenden Lane, Mountain View, CA 94043.

When coming from the parking lot walk towards the center and keep an eye out for an AMP sign.  We labelled a satellite view to help you find your way.

Parking is free, and you may park anywhere you find an open spot.  There is no need for a parking pass/validation. 

Goals

The AMP Contributor Summit provides a way for the AMP open source community to:

  • Meet each other in person.
  • Share the latest knowledge about developing in AMP--from relevant web technologies that are important for AMP contributors to know to how-tos on AMP architecture.
  • Enjoy deeply technical talks about the internals of AMP and how they could change in the future.
  • Review what we've accomplished in AMP so far and discuss what AMP's priorities should be going into the future.

Agenda

Note that we're still finalizing some details and the schedule may change!

Travel scholarships 

Just as we strive to make the AMP open source community inclusive, we want the AMP Contributor Summit to include people with a diverse set of backgrounds.

To help achieve this goal we are offering a scholarship program which provides help with transportation & lodging costs for people from groups that are underrepresented in tech (including but not limited to: women, people of color, LGBTQIA+ people, disabled people, and people facing economic or social hardships).

If you would like to participate in this scholarship program please follow the instructions in the application.

Selection

Due to space constraints we can't accomodate everyone who applies to attend the summit.

We will let applicants know whether they were selected to attend by July 25, 2018.  After this date we will accept applicants on an rolling basis as space allows.

Please do not arrange non-refundable travel for the summit until you receive confirmation that you were selected to attend.
