 Tulsa TechFest 2012 Overview

What is Tulsa TechFest?

  • It is a technical conference with currently the broadest topics in the United States, maybe the world. There are tracks covering everything enterprise architecture, software/web development, databases, project management, Security, Social Media, Mobile, Enterpreneurs, Managers, BI & Reporting, Mentoring and this year a special Windows 8 Track!
  • 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 40 national/international speakers and 90 to 120 75 minute sessions.
  • A charitable non-profit event organized by Tulsa area volunteers. If we ever have left of lunch, we donate it to the John 3:16 Mission. Even though it is a free event, we asked you to PLEASE bring TWO CANS or TWO BUCKS. We collected 469 pounds of food! So let's top that number this year!  All canned food will be donated to the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma!
    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.
    Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma

Mike Murach and Associates - For over 0 years, professional developers have been relying on Murach books for quick, practical training and reference. As one developer put it, `quotI started off as a mainframe programmer and I read other books, but none ? and I really mean none ? were as useful as Murach?s. Now I've crossed over into Visual Basic land with their book. As usual, it's the best book out there.`quotFrom the beginning, our goal has always been the same: To develop the best book possible on any programming subject. That's why our books are written by our own staff of experienced developers who know how to produce great training material. That's why each book is packed with tested business examples. That's why we format the content in `quotpaired pages,`quot an approach that developers praise for both training and reference. And because we put that kind of time and care into each book, developers come back to us year after year, whenever they need career-related training.
