TECHBASH 2024 KEYNOTES

Confusion is the Sweat of Learning

Join us for this session where we'll discuss how confusion is an important part of the learning process. We'll cover how to identify it, what steps to take when we're confused, and how the act of finding the answer can be more important than the answer itself.

At TechBash, attendees will take their skills to the next level, learning from experts who share their knowledge in a fun, collaborative, and inclusive environment. TechBash is focused on Web, Cloud, DevOps, Architecture, Best Practices, Soft Skills, and much more. We provide three full days of keynotes and breakout sessions plus an optional fourth day of deep-dive workshops. And so you don't get burned out, we also have social events, a family day, and yes, we are hosted at the largest indoor waterpark on the East Coast. TechBash is a non-profit, community run event, led by developers for developers. After TechBash, attendees are inspired to build remarkable things. Read more here.

WONDERING WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND TECHBASH?

At TechBash we inspire our attendees to build great things that will change the world. The sessions at TechBash will deliver bleeding edge advances in the coding, designing and development of mobile, web, desktop and SaaS applications. Our speakers are world class knowledge experts you may have seen featured at other conferences like DevIntersections, NDC, VS Live (Visual Studio Live), and Google I/O. We keep adding an inclusive variety of speakers to the list, so check back regularly to see who’s up next.

We’ve built a safe, welcoming and exciting environment that is designed for *all* attendees to get the most out of the event. In the many, many informative sessions at TechBash, you’ll learn a crazy number of new things, but we know amazing interactions happen outside the talks too. Our attendee lounge will have plenty of space for you to hang out and talk with old friends and make new ones. Speakers and attendees will gather in the lounge to follow up talks after sessions over coffee and snacks. Our awesome, big name vendors will be there, presenting their latest gadgets and code, and a few job listings as well.

Our venue, the Kalahari Resort, is really cool. It is a recently expanded resort, conference center and 220,000 sq. ft. indoor water park, now the largest in the country. The Kalahari is located in the beautiful Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, less than a 2-hour drive from New York City, Philadelphia, and northern NJ. This location is still within reasonable driving distance of many other cities in the northeast. Many developer conferences require a cross-country flight and thousands of dollars to attend. Some are even invitation-only. TechBash is different. We're in your backyard, our tickets are a fraction of the cost of those other conferences, and all are welcome. Yet, we have several of the same speakers and sessions.

Haven’t been to TechBash? We extend a hand to you, especially those of you who haven’t attended a developer conference before or may feel excluded at tech events. TechBash is for everyone, and we’re going to have loads of fun while we learn a ton. Get TechBash tickets here. We look forward to seeing you there!
