VOLTTRON™ Office Hours

VOLTTRON office hours occur every other week (Fridays at 11 a.m. PT), and are attended by the development team and members of the community. Meetings may have selected topics, but they are intended to provide an open forum for questions ranging from "How do I get started?" to detailed discussions of a specific VOLTTRON feature.
