There is an incredible amount of work and detail that goes into this one day event , a lot of which is unseen. None of this happens without months of hard work and effort on the part of many people. This year we had a total of 60 volunteers! That is a record for the FTF. Thank you all for contributing to a wonderful day and supporting CORBA and CORBA's advocacy efforts.
