event! We have a fantastic event in store with meaty talks, t-shirts,
stickers, prizes and wonderful sponsors including *Rackspace, MapMyFitness,
HBK, Stormpulse, zOmega, Tendenci and more*.

We are looking forward to our talk submissions and the schedule being
posted. Don’t forget, the deadline to submit a talk is TODAY Sunday, August
