Relaunch of Q2Developer.com

We are very excited to launch a brand new Q2Developer.com. The team has been working on the rebuild for a number of months now. There were only a couple of actual features in the old developer portal, but the rebuild was from the ground up. Everything from the marketing site, to authentication and JIRA integration needed to be built to maintain feature parity with the existing portal. Please check it out and experiment with using the support ticketing system for your next support request.

Caliper SDK User Group

We are starting a Caliper SDK User Group. Q2 has had a user group for quite some time for the broad audience of all customers running the Q2 product. We are looking to get a SDK user group started in the next month or so. At this point, if you are interested in joining the user group please fill out this form:

All people involved with building stuff in the Caliper SDK are welcome. That means Developers, Product Owners, Designers, and QA. The user group is open to people from Q2's financial instutitions but also from our Certified 3rd Parties and our fintech partners.

Apply Here

We really want this to be an open discussion where people using the Caliper SDK can come together and share ideas, stay up to date and propose discussion topics.

If the number of submissions is very large we may start off limiting the number of attendees and grow it over time.
