Here’s what some of our 2017 speakers and attendees said about us:

“We aren’t even at lunch yet and already this is the coolest conference I’ve ever been to!” – @mahtab_sabet

“@bangbangcon managed to pack more useful info into one day than most other conferences do in 3. And it was 10x more fun.” – @johnwittrock

“It’s refreshing to learn 30+ new things about programming in a single weekend at @bangbangcon, even though I’ve been programming for so long” – @pixelyunicorn

“@bangbangcon is the most exciting and important conference in NYC” – @aaronmblevin

“@bangbangcon was awesome! Learned a lot, met very friendly people, and left inspired.” – @bxmani
