With only a week to go, we’re counting down the days until the inaugural Tasktop Connect conference (Wednesday 4th October 2017 in Columbus, Ohio), and the excitement and energy in the office is palpable. Like our attendees, we simply cannot wait to engage with some of the brightest and most forward-thinking minds in the software community.
If you’re still not sure whether you’re coming, here’s a little recap of what the conference is all about…
What is Tasktop Connect?
Tasktop is bringing together IT transformation leaders and Agile, DevOps and Lean visionaries to share their experiences and provide attendees with tangible takeaways on how to optimize their software delivery and scale Agile and DevOps transformations.
Where is it?
The modern and stylish urban-venue VUE in Columbus’ historic brewery district, which is only a 15-minute drive from the airport and just a 5-minute drive from our discounted hotel, Courtyard Marriot Downtown.
This year we’ve watched years’ worth of ideas and hard work come to fruition, with a host of milestones including:
- Tasktop celebrating its ten-year anniversary
- The launch of Tasktop Integration Hub
- 70%+ growth for the second year in a row
- $11.3 million raised in our second round of funding
- Gene Kim appointed as Tasktop strategic advisor
The common theme across these milestones is ‘customer success’. Tasktop and our customers are on a shared journey to change the way software is built, and we wanted a dynamic platform that celebrated our mutual achievements and laid the foundations for future growth. Our customers were clearly on the same page as we were inundated with questions about whether we were going to host our own event!
