How can I sponsor?

This year, we're asking sponsors to help us promote the event and/or provide speakers. If you have other ideas of things you could provide, we're more than happy to discuss. In exchange, we'll list your logo on our sponsors slide that shows before and after each session. You're also more than welcome to provide a short video, which we'll include in the playlist.

Who is Colorado Springs Tech?

We started as a group of meetup organizers for some of the tech meetups in Colorado Springs, including coloradosprings.js and PeakPHP. We built a slack community for Colorado Springs (which you can also join here). In 2019, we decided to further promote the Colorado Springs Tech community by organizing an (un)conference.
