Join us in January for Coding Forward — our three-city tour with the development team behind President Obama’s successful re-election campaign. The Obama for America team helped redefine how technology can make or break an election. You may have seen some of their groundbreaking efforts covered in Ars Technica, Mashable and more.

In the panel discussions, the OFA team will describe how they used big data tools to maximize campaign efficiency, volunteer engagement and voter outreach. They’ll also talk about how they built their team, their DevOps practices, and how they used a sophisticated cloud-based infrastructure to get the best results while keeping their costs under control.

Panelists include:

* Scott VanDenPlas – DevOps Tech Lead
