Frequently asked questions
The name is closely associated with the music meaning. We have musicians in our team here, and when they jam with other musicians it’s casual and fun. Everybody brings their own experiences, skill levels, and ideas to the “conversation”. It's the same with our meet-up series, hence the name.
Yep. The Jam is free but registration is required, so we can plan ahead the pizzas ordering. 🍕 Scaleway aims to pump up engineers who build great things and build bridges among the entire community—whatever the domain of expertise, whatever the skill level: you are welcome onboard, and it's free.
