Last Friday (September 18th, 2020), a small group of Airtable fans decided to host a free virtual conference to highlight the amazing things happening in the Airtable community.  We were honored to be involved in a small way to help make it happen.  The conference was the brain child of Airtable fan Chris Dancy (the most connected man).

 

The full agenda was as follows and a reply of the conference is embedded below for those who missed it.  Hopefully it will continue in the future and we will be sure to be involved as well.

See full schedule here.
