“@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
