THAT Conference is unlike any other technical conference. This unique four days of summer camp is full of workshops, sessions, open spaces, family events and networking all nestled in the gorgeous Wisconsin Dells at The Kalahari Waterpark and Resort. This family friendly event is comprised of professional and family tracks so there is something to learn and experience at all ages.

Whether you choose to interact face-to-face and learn from industry leaders, use a hands-on approach in our dedicated Maker space, expand your mind through yoga or hang out in the hallways to network with THAT incredible community, you get to choose the avenues that best fulfill your needs. Not only is there a variety of learning opportunities, we take our camping seriously with lots of bacon, a pig roast family dinner and bonding over the campfire to share stories.

Join us at camp August 5th - 8th, 2019 to experience a one-of-kind event and become part of our family.
