Join Bandcamp lead internationalization engineer Anna Russo Kennedy for a talk about the technical and cultural challenges behind making Bandcamp accessible in languages other than English. The engineering to make that possible is complex and fascinating, involving string tagging, extraction, and bundling, character widths, and cultural differences.
Food from Ashirwad the Blessings will be served, and free, beautiful limited edition vinyl of bandcamp musician of the year KING will be raffled off.

It is easy for artists and labels to get their music on Bandcamp, but the engineering to get there is complex and fascinating.
