ThunderPlains 2017

ThunderPlains is coming up fast – just two days away! This is the fifth year of co-organizing the conference, and we always have a great time with the local community.

Grab some tickets to ThunderPlains 2017 if you have not done so already – it will be a lot of fun to meet everyone else in tech working along side you in your own community. There is a lot more tech activity than you think – right under your nose here in Oklahoma!
