VALA L-Plate

Introduced in 2008, the VALA L Plate is held every two years at the VALA Biennial Conference.. It is a series of introductory sessions focusing on technologies that will be discussed in more detail during the VALA Biennial conference. Attendance at these sessions is free, but preference is always given to conference delegates with full registrations.

The VALA L-Plate series has proven to be very popular, with 96% of attendees saying it exceeded their expectations. Comments from the previous L-Plate series include:

  • A great overview,
  • A good way to find out what is new, and
  • My list of things to experiment with has grown much longer.

See following for details of previous L Plate Session details.
