What's it all About?

We're excited to announce DEVcember, a month-long festival of live online events and fun challenges, showcasing Redis and our community!

Join us on Twitch or YouTube for a daily 15-20 minute live stream on Monday to Friday where we'll introduce Redis concepts, share projects that you can contribute to and have some fun banter. For Saturday and Sunday, we’ll give you a mini challenge to complete.

Don't worry if you miss a stream - we'll post them on YouTube and embed them in the schedule below.

The fun begins Wednesday 1st December 2021 at 9am UTC.
