Did you know that early bird registration is now open for TechBash 2017? I can’t believe it is 2017 already, I never even got to write up a TechBash 2016 recap post!

TechBash 2017 | October 4-6, 2017 | Kalahari Resort, Pocono Manor, PA

If you attended our last TechBash, you know it was great. So now is a good time to take advantage of the early bird pricing. All 2016 attendees received a special discount code that can be used before January 31. If you didn’t attend, you can register for $279 for TechBash 2017. Prices go up Jan 31.

What should you expect from TechBash 2017? Great speakers, great content, great venue. We are currently working on getting a list of talks for 2017. But I can tell you now that most of the presenters have said they’d like to be back for 2017. Here are some of the comments we received from our evals. I think the quotes tell the story nicely.

Having a conference of this caliber in NEPA [North Eastern PA] is awesome. The speakers were all friendly and accessible enabling deeper conversations regarding their presentations and related topics. It was a wonderful event and the content was perfect.

Really, I thought everything was covered quite well.  Nitty gritty implementation and syntax seminars?  Check.  Higher-level software planning seminars?  Check.  New and coming tools and libraries?  Check.  Inspirational keynote talks?  Yep.  Fun?  Absolutely.   I have all good things to say to our team upon returning, who will no doubt be a little jealous they didn’t attend this year.  We will likely have a bigger group attending next year.  Keep up the great work.

Really good conference.  I will definitely be returning next year.  I had a great time

This was my first major/multi-day conference and it was a great experience. Thank you to the organizers and speakers, I am definitely looking forward to attending again in the future. I was also inspired to one day hopefully speak in front of a group of developers.

Great first conference, looking forward to next year!

Speaking for the organizers, the conference went pretty smoothly, especially for a first time event. Mostly, the only problems that were obvious to any attendees were the occasional “presenter can’t connect to the projector” issues. And thanks the awesome tech staff at the Kalahari, these situations were quickly resolved. We heard a ton of feedback about how great the presenters were, people loved the venue and waterpark, and (this is real and I was quite surprised) people said we had the best lunch of any conference they attended! This event had a great community feel to it. Presenters, attendees, sponsors, and staff all learned from each other over 3 days. Lots of new friendships were made.

Oh, and if you enjoyed the waterpark, you’ll be glad to hear that phase 2 will be completed this spring. That means a total of 200,000 sq. ft. of fun – doubling the size of the waterpark! Plus new restaurants, a ropes course and more!
