Going to Tech⋅Ed North America? So are we!
Train Signal is making the journey to sunny Orlando next week to take part in one of best technical education conferences for IT Professionals.
This year’s Tech⋅Ed is divided into two separate weeks. The first week focuses on Developers and runs from June 3rd through June 6th.
The second week — the week we will be there — is for IT Professionals, starting on June 10th and ending June 13th.
So if you’re planning on joining over 10,000 people at this year’s Tech⋅Ed make sure to stop by booth number 826 (should be in the middle of the floor) and meet the Train Signal team!
