mangocon2016_sam_speaking What is MangoCon?
MangoCon is the refreshing IT conference, where real world techs learn from real world experts. Our sessions are designed by technicians for technicians, and are led by working leaders in these fields. MangoCon is the only conference where IT Pros are given actual skills and knowledge to advance your career, make better IT decisions, and broaden your IT prowess without being bombarded by a sales pitch.
MangoCon2017_setup Why MangoCon?
MangoCon was started to give IT Pros a true technical conference without the sales pitch. By listening to the desires of you, the IT Pro, we designed our conference to give you expert information from industry experts. Actual working IT Pros who have worked with and deployed the solutions they present. Real information that you can apply to your unique experience.
MangoCon 2017 Jared Real Experts
At MangoCon, we have recruited some of the industry’s best to lead our sessions. From Cloud Architecture to FreePBX, as well as key business strategy, and real world implementation, you will gain expert knowledge to help you increase your skills, and accomplish your goals.
MangoCon2016_Max_speaks More than IT
At MangoCon, you will learn more than specific technical topics. We will give you insight from CEOs, CIOs, and other IT Business leaders to help you with IT finance, Business alignment, and how C-Suite execs look and view IT. At MangoCon, you get to talk to real experts and real executives, and with open questions and answer sessions, get the answers you want.
