Does ‘efficiently negotiating progressive alignments by dynamically enabling hyper-scale communities’ make you break out in hives?

Us too!

We’re a collective of specialists, learners, educators, engineers, geeks and creatives helping schools discover and use technology in meaningful ways. Our work impacts thousands of kids and builds better educational experiences in classrooms across the country.

Learning is our gig, and we dive head first into any opportunity to find out about new things, whether it’s mainlining coffee at 3am to watch the latest keynote, spending the weekend elbows-deep in a box of robots, or building and breaking the latest tools to see what makes them tick.

We live and breathe the Apple ecosystem because we wouldn’t have it any other way. Those interesting ‘in between’ spaces where Apple and other technologies coexist is our happy place, and we can help to make it your happy place too.

We’re super proud to support /dev/world because when our community grows, awesome things happen.

We hope you enjoy the conference – please say hi and tell us about the great stuff you’re doing!
