Sponsor Spotlight: Linode

It’s no secret that putting on a tech conference is neither easy nor cheap. Without the generous sponsorships of companies and organizations within the community, we would not be able to provide awesome amenities such as meals, t-shirts and prizes, rent such a gorgeous venue in downtown Lancaster, and at the same time keep the conference tickets at a price point that is accessible to as many people as possible (and free to students!).

This week, CPOSC would like to extend a thank you to our Gold Sponsor, Linode.
