Teki Con Brings Mobile Development and Fun to Atlanta

Partner Post - Teki Con is the first ever tiki-themed technology conference

Posted: February 13, 2018

Catamaran, LLC presents the first annual Teki Con, a tiki-themed technology conference hosting mobile developers from all over the world. The event will be held at the Woodruff Arts Center in Midtown Atlanta and kick off with a festive luau at a local tiki bar. The conference runs from March 12-14 and features some of the top names in the industry, hands-on development labs, and exclusive networking opportunities.

Catamaran’s founders have been active members of the iOS development community since its inception and welcomed the opportunity to bring more of a mobile presence to their turf. Steven Elliott and Jonathan Crockett founded Catamaran on the principles opportunity, value, and fun with Teki Con being the first step along that journey. “We noticed a lack of mobile conferences in the Southeast and a lack of conferences in general that provide immediate value to attendees. We created Teki Con to solve this,” said Crockett.

The event will feature speakers from top companies such as Snap, Inc., New York Times, Intuit, Blue Apron, and more. Attendees will also have access to some of the best trainers in the industry when Big Nerd Ranch leads our hands-on development labs.
