How to Register

To register for a class, click the "BOOK YOUR TICKETS" link below. Choose a "Conference Only" ticket or a "Conference + Training" ticket. If you choose a ticket with trainiing, you will be given the ability to select your training class(es) after your ticket purchase.

Note, the class "Building Production-Ready GraphQL APIs" is a two-day class, and has it's own separate ticket. Please choose its specific ticket if you wish to take the two-day GraphQL training class.

Most classes are single day classes and repeated for your convenience to help you organize a training schedule that best fits your needs. Only the Room 1 classes are not repeated.

If you choose one of the embedded hardware classes, you will need to also add the appropriate hardware fee for that class. Attendees will walk away from these classes with a substantial amount of hardware.
