OpenAir is the premier tech conference that focuses on creating engineering solutions to the challenges of matching. The brightest minds in the industry will come together to tackle such issues as search and discovery, trust, internationalization, mobile, and infrastructure.

This year we’ll have more technical talks and we’ll hear about Scaling from Instagram co-founder, Mikey Krieger, Innovation at Netflix from Carlos Gomez-Uribe, Reaching underserved communities from Watsi co-founder, Grace Garey, and Building Periscope from Sara Haider — among many others.

Attendees will get access to technical talks, hands-on sessions and thought-provoking discussions to help you break through some of your own engineering challenges and projects. Throughout the day there will be time to network with local engineers, take part in interactive sessions, drop in for lightning talks, and meet the speakers.

Registration is $50 and all proceeds from registration fees will be donated to CODE2040.
