2015 Austin Conference
Join us on March 28-29, 2015
Texas and Austin are a powerhouse of technology development in the US. As global enterprises learn about the power of the block chain the need for expertise in development will grow exponentially. The time to educate is now. We are working this year in conjunction with the College Crypto Network, Bitcoincollege.info and BitcoinU to help draw in students and seasoned developers alike to inform and educate about this next big technology.
We are also thrilled to be right downtown at ACL Live at the Moody Theater and able to show off what a great town Austin is.
We are excited:
To host the 2nd Bitcoin 2.0 Million Dollar Hackathon. (4 out of 5 of last years winners went on to launch companies)
The conference has put out the first call for papers and the proceedings will be published.
To have George Gilder, author of WEALTH and POVERTY as one of our key speakers.
To once again be putting together a diverse and encompassing list of speakers and panelists.
To be supporting great charities proving Bitcoin as a Force For Good. (BitGive, Sean's Outpost, Capitol area Food Bank of Austin and Without Regrets)
We've even invited the entire Texas Legislature so they can see what being the Bitcoin Friendly state builds for Texas and the world.
