Save time and money by attending a Continua Plugfest. All the tools, resources and people involved in developing the Continua Design Guidelines and its Certification Process are in the same room! You will get a complete vision of the Certification Steps and the requirements for achieving a Continua Certified Product. You will also meet other manufacturers who are each at a different development stage with their products and who can help you directly in completing a compliant Continua product. Plugfests are a great opportunity for organization in any stage of the development to learn more about Continua Certification, to meet other people related with the Alliance, to pre-test devices and get advice from experts.
