Tulsa TechFest is returning for its third year, and I’ve been asked to speak.

My talk on “Hacking the Meaning in Human Communication” is a part of the Java track, though it contains REST Web programming as well as Java API info and examples.

What is TechFest? In the words of the organizers:

  • TechFest is a technical conference with currently the broadest topics in the United States, maybe the world. Covering everything enterprise architecture, software/web development, databases, project management, data security and this year for the first time – graphic/web design.
  • It’s primary focus is to provide training/teaching sessions that are immediately benefical to the broadest range of IT professionals in their day-to-day jobs. Over 60 national/international speakers and 90 to 120 75 minute sessions.
  • A charitable non-profit event organized by Tulsa area volunteers.
  • In 2006, it started as a one day event on Saturday, October 14th, 2006, attracting over 360+ attendees.
  • In 2007, we listened to everyone’s feedback and had phenominal success with over 660+ attendees on Friday, October 19th, 2007, and over 460+ on Saturday, October 20th, 2007.
  • Since our first event, many other communities have been following our example by hosting their own TechFest events: VancouverTechFest, HoustonTechFest, DallasTechFest, AlbertaTechFest and IndyTechFest.

Information on speakers, agenda, etc. is being updated now on the Tulsa TechFest 2008 site. You can also follow Tulsa TechFest on Twitter for updates.

More to come as we approach October. And if you’re in the region, please do plan to attend. Hope to see you there!
