The Poconos mountain region is most famous for its skiing and snowboarding. Located west of the hustle and bustle of New York City and north of Philadelphia, the Poconos are a quick drive from the hectic city life to some very peaceful rolling hills, natural beauty, and tourist attractions. While those are great reasons to visit, for a couple of hundred tech enthusiasts, those were all secondary to gathering in early November. They got together to share best practices and discuss how to build and scale applications securely as they got together for TechBash 2023.
One thing that sets TechBash apart is the family-friendly focus. Taking place at Poconos Kalahari Resort, home to one of the largest indoor waterparks in the US, attendees are encouraged to bring their families. The event’s final day even had a family-friendly session track, which featured a live reptile encounter this year.
