The time is NOW and the word is GO! The 2008 Tulsa TechFest web site is up and running (and it looks great, by the way!) Get on over to http://www.tulsatechfest.com to see what David has planned for this year’s extravaganza. Last year there were over 700 people that attended in his 2 day event – this year he’s hoping to up the ante at a cool thousand…
What is Tulsa TechFest?
It is a technical conference with currently the broadest topics in the United States, maybe the world. Covering everything enterprise architecture, software/web development, databases, project management, data security and this year for the first time - graphic/web design.
It's primary focus is to provide training/teaching sessions that are immediately benefical to the broadest range of IT professionals in their day-to-day jobs. We accomplish this with over 60 national/international speakers and 90 to 120 75 minute sessions.
A charitable non-profit event organized by Tulsa area volunteers. For the past two years, we have donated a LOT of pizza to the John 3:16 Mission. This year for the first time, we will be charging each day of the event - TWO CANS or TWO BUCKS. All canned food will be donated to the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma and all proceeds will be donated to the Family & Children's Services. We prefer to over order than under order for lunch, so we will continue the tradition of donating the extras to the John 3:16 Mission.
David & Company put on a great show last year, and are destined to put on an even better show this year. The speakers list looks fantastic, and it’s growing all the time. There are currently 16 TRACKS full of space for some incredible sessions under the headings of .NET development, Silverlight, Designers, Architecture, Project Management, AJAX/WEB, SharePoint, Connected Systems and even Java & PHP just to name a few!
Tell all your friends to clear their calendars for October 9th and 10th at OSU Tulsa for a premier community-driven event! Feel free to use the logo at the top of this post for your announcements and encourage people to keep up with what’s happening by following TulsaTechFest on Twitter!
