Are you a part of a small but mighty staff without much budget for professional development? Or maybe a budding entrepreneur eager to learn more about how to make your future better?

Well, now there’s a way to attend our #PTW18 Dev Conference and Introduced by Technical.ly conferences for free through our new PTW Scholarship Program.

In conjunction with our Community Supporter sponsors, we’re excited to offer a limited number of free, scholarship tickets to community members who may not otherwise be able to cover the ticket price.
