Prospectus

Greetings from the Strange Loop Team!

Since 2009, Strange Loop has established itself as the leading venue for the most innovative software developers to meet, share ideas, and create the next wave of technology. Strange Loop has sold out every year since 2009, finally finding a home at the Peabody Opera House where we can accommodate 1100 attendees.

Strange Loop 2014 will be a two day conference (Sept 18th-19th) with a preconference workshop day (Sept 17th). The preconference day will be held at the conference hotel, the Union Station DoubleTree.

If you're looking to connect with some of the world's best and brightest software professionals, then Strange Loop is the place. Whether you're interested in brand awareness, hiring, education, supporting a great conference, or creating direct connections to key influencers, Strange Loop has options for you.

Sincerely,
Alex Miller, Founder
