Tulsa TechFest 2010–“It’s ALL geek to me!”

Move over Rogers and Hammerstein…David Walker’s in town.

Tulsa TechFest 2010Oklahoma. Setting of one of the most famous musicals of all time, but more importantly than that, home to one of the biggest and best geek gatherings - Tulsa TechFest!

Now in its fifth year, Tulsa TechFest has grown from strength to strength under the watchful eye of founder, David Walker.

David is a well-established technical resource in the South Central District. He also has almost enough Little Walkers to make up 2 five-a-side football teams (or soccer teams to our American friends Winking smile). David works tirelessly for the developer community in Tulsa, and many consider him the “go-to” guy for community activities in the region. And with good reason, he has successfully driven local user groups, code camps and tech fests to make the developer scene in Tulsa what it is today. And that isn’t just my opinion. You just need to take a look at the recommendations on David’s LinkedIn profile to know that the developer community in his region is one of the most vibrant around.

Tulsa TechFest – Warp 5

Tulsa TechFest number 5 is just a few short weeks away, on Friday November 12th. You still have time to sign up to attend. As with most community events, this one is completely free to attend, but David and the team do make a small request – bring two cans or two bucks. All canned food is donated to the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma and all proceeds donated to the Family & Children's Services. Not only does David give back to the developer community, he also encourages the developer community to help charitable organisations in the area.

What a great guy.

But to the event. What can you expect? Try this on for size: 64 great speakers, on 24 different tracks, a stack of giveaways and you get to see Seth Juarez deliver his Machine Learning in .NET, live!

It could only be better if Steve Andrews was there to get you started with Umbraco CMS … hang on … he is!

Seriously, this is a great event, with great speakers, organised by a great community leader. Miss it and I will hunt you down. You have been warned.
