The Online Open Space

The online open space will be held on Gather Town as we did with our previous open spaces, a virtual meeting platform that facilitates interactive and engaging sessions.

The online space provides a continuous learning environment where participants can engage in discussions, attend sessions, and collaborate on DDD-related topics.
