What is XConf North America?

XConf is the tech conference created by technologists, for technologists who care deeply about the craft of software and its ability to make the world a better place. This one-day, single-track event will host a diverse range of technology leaders, topics, and points of view.

Talks are short and to the point, so we pack a ton of content into one fast-paced day!
