This year’s theme is TCF@40: Celebrating our past and exploring our future — a look back and a leap forward.  All who attended TCF in its early days are invited back and will receive special recognition.  We will feature presentations on the history of TCF as well as the hottest leading-edge technologies shaping our future.

Dan Rosenbaum, President and Editor-in-Chief of Center Ring Media, will be our keynote speaker.  He will address the incredible opportunities awaiting us as we are Approaching Singularity. Futurist Ray Kurzweil wrote that humans and machines would be indistinguishable in about 30 years. Dan will explain the steps we’re taking along that journey today, and why the time for achieving Kurzweil’s vision may be closer that we think.  Dan is a veteran journalist, who has written for and edited numerous magazines, and was one of the first to create a permanent online presence for a monthly print magazine.  He joins a distinguished roster of TCF keynote speakers, including Bill Gates, Gary Kildall, and Brian Kernighan. For other presentations and speakers at TCF, see the above speaker grid link or the below slideshow of images.

We are also happy to announce this year’s IT Professional Conference (ITPC) and Integrated STEM Education Conference (ISEC)!

TCF @40 is TCF’s 40th anniversary and the 40th anniversary of CP/M created by past TCF keynote Gary Kildall. Learn more about TCF, its History, and see a photo slideshow of the first TCF and a video of the first TCF Keynote Presentation. The video features John Mauchly, co-creator of ENIAC at the Moore School of Engineering, University of Pennsylvania.
