Tulsa TechFest 2011: DevExpress + Glenn Block = Awesome!

What is Tulsa TechFest?

Tulsa TechFest is the brain child of David Walker, Senior Application Development Manager with Microsoft. In a life before Microsoft, David set up Tulsa TechFest to provide the Oklahoma community with a technical conference that provided great quality content to the developer community completely free of charge. Now in its sixth year, Tulsa TechFest has gone from strength to strength, continually bringing phenomenal speakers to Tulsa to engage and delight the masses.

Tulsa TechFest is a one day community-driven event that aims to bring great speakers to its audience for no cost except “2 cans or 2 bucks”. This seemingly small donation meant that almost 470 pounds of food was donated to a local charitable cause last year. This year all canned food will be donated to the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma and all financial proceeds will be donated to the Family & Children's Services.

Think about it this way: you’re giving a little to get A LOT!

Why you should attend Tulsa TechFest

Tulsa TechFest is a fantastic community-driven conference that is co-ordinated by a community leader who has a passion for encouraging the process of sharing. Not only does the event provide the Tulsa development community with completely free educational material, but it also brings in leading figures from the Microsoft development teams.

This year, not only will you find our own Seth Juarez loitering and chattering about the Kinect API and Machine Learning for .NET, you will also find Microsoft Senior Program Manager Glenn Block onsite. Glenn leads the teams working on WCF, .NET FX and the Managed Extensibility Framework in .NET 4.0.

Tulsa TechFest is not just another community event. It is an experience.

Register now – you won’t regret it!

See you in Tulsa!
