Announcing The Techsylvania Agenda For This Year’s Event

With the Techsylvania event right around the corner, we thought it would be a good idea to share the Techsylvania agenda for the conference.This way, you will all know what to expect and there won’t be any unwanted surprises ruining your experience. Don’t forget that there are still tickets available for both the conference and the Hackathon if you haven’t managed to get your hands on them yet.

If you don’t already know, there will be a ton of speakers coming to this year’s Techsylvania to share their useful insight with you. We’re going to give you a little taste of what’s about to come. If you want a properly planned-out schedule, check out the Techsylvania agenda, right under the featured speakers.

Those of you who are interested in software security will most likely be pleased and excited to see what insight Florin Talpes, the CEO of Bitdefender, has to share with you. Jonathan Bradford will also be making an appearance in order to give you useful tips about startups and accelerator programs.

Mick Hagen is making an appearance on the Techsylvania agenda. When it comes to getting reliable information about running your own business and making a huge profit by selling it for millions, you can’t find someone better than him to answer your questions.

The Senior Developer Advocate of Braintree by PayPal, Cristiano Betta, is also coming as a speaker to teach us all everything he knows about development and coding in Ruby and Rails. Moreover, Peter Juszczynski, branding evangelist at Google, will offer you useful information about brand building.

The Techsylvania agenda has many more great speakers in store for you, such as Andrei Dunca, the co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of LiveRail, and Gentry Underwood, the co-founder of Mailbox, an application he sold to Dropbox for a huge sum of money.
