We're on a mission to connect the technology community through professional development and learning opportunities.
Join us December 13th - 19th.

This year, we are setting out to spark curiosity in the tech community with the creation of Curiosity Week. From December 13th - 19th, there will be 30+ events revolving around technology. These events will be curated to engage those interested in pursuing tech as a career, provide professional development to technology professionals, and give tech entrepreneurs a place to convene. We believe that at the core, growth is sparked by curiosity - so let’s start there.

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, tickets are now FREE (previously $129). You will still need to register on Sched for the individual events that you are interested (see below).

Events will be continually updated and added as we approach curiosity week so please check back often.
