According to Gianoni, “bbdevdays showcases the power of collaboration and our commitment to the developer community, where we’re stronger together. The conference really highlights the ingenuity and creativity of a strong and growing network of customer developers, partners and independent technologists.”

In addition, the conference will provide mainstage presentations from Blackbaud executives and product experts, track sessions led by customers and partners, and skills labs that offer creators a chance to practice building both low-code and advanced solutions. 

Throughout the conference, Blackbaud has promised to announce technologies that will assist social impact organizations in further customizing their business processes and applications to serve to their exact needs.

Participants are sure to walk away with new knowledge and renewed energy.”
