Pittsburgh TechFest 2019


Pittsburgh TechFest is a one-day event where software development professionals from Southwestern Pennsylvania and surrounding areas will get together to talk and learn about perfecting our craft.

Topics will include coding, tools, agile, project management, etc. All development disciplines (devs, testers, PMs, DBAs, BAs etc.) and all development stacks (Ruby, Java, .Net, JavaScript, Python, SQL Server, Oracle, etc.) are welcome!

Pittsburgh TechFest is dedicated to providing an outstanding conference experience for all our attendees, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, financial status, hair color (or hair amount), platform preference, or text editor of choice.

This is the seventh edition of the non-denominational software development technology conference in Pittsburgh. Any topic related to software development in any language or platform (or no technology, if you wish to talk about the softer side) is welcome. We usually have a wide mix of topics and presenter levels (beginner to professional).

The event is June 13, 2020 at Nova Place on the North Shore of Pittsburgh. There are hotels in the area, but please note we cannot pick up your travel expenses as this is a volunteer-run, nearly free ($15-25) conference. We expect around 200 people to attend.

Feel free to submit more than one talk. Feel especially free to submit your FIRST TALK EVER!

What we are known for: Pittsburgh TechFest specializes in providing a forum for niche talks and first time speakers.

We think that talks that tell a story are excellent. For example, it would be great if your talk told us about that time you:

  • deleted the whole production database and then figured out how to restore everything
  • refactored that slow dashboard
  • asked for a raise (and got it!)
  • helped the new dev figure out your arcane build script and learned how to make it easier and better
