Good Tech Conf is a non profit conference bringing together 200 technologists with a passion for large scale computer systems, ethics, and diversity.
We will be exploring, discovering, and inspiring the use of technology for social good.
We will celebrate - and contribute to - projects supporting the ethical application of current and near future technology.
This year, Good Tech Conf is focusing the discussion around technology that can have an impact in reducing food and packaging waste, and homelessness.
After a day of tech talks from project teams using their skills for social good, you’ll have the chance to take part in workshops and hackathons to use your own talents for a worthy cause.
The sessions will give you the opportunity to build and deliver working software to one of this year’s named causes.
Note, a flight in the i360 is included for all conference attendees. There are local hotel discounts available upon request for attendees.
