What is builderscon?

builderscon is a conference to celebrate the "builders" of our age, the engineers, the programmers, and the technology that they build. builderscon is slightly more focused on web-related technology because we originated from a web-centric conference, but we bring speakers from various different fields which are not constrained from our past. We would love for you to "Discover Something New" and broaden your network and knowledge.

Currently planned guest speakers include those from the fields of Web enginnering, Network Security, and IoT Devices Manufaturing. Even if these are not exactly your field of expertise, we strongly recommend that you find out what you do or do not have in common with what you have not seen yet.
