I loved it! I have not been able to find ANYTHING devoted to “techs” previous to this conference. Everything is curriculum, administrator, or teacher based. This was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend it to every tech out there – whether you are a large district or small there is something for everyone!
(Mark Ohm, Senior Technical Assistant, Strongsville City Schools, OH)

Awesome conference at a great value. Finding EdTech conferences completely geared to the network/sys admins is hard to come by. This one should be on your list.
(Ken Jacobs, Director of Technology, Lincoln Park Public Schools, MI)
