EpCon Coming Back To Waterloo in January

epconStudent technology conference EpCon is coming back to Waterloo on January 27-28th 2012. EpCon gathers leaders from the tech industry and students interested in tech from schools across Canada to deliberate application and future of various technologies. Events will be held at Bingemans Conference Centre, registration for EpCon2 opens on October 31, 2011.

EpCon2 will feature Encode, where students can show off their technical hacking skills while racing against others. This event will commence Friday night and challenge the real night-owls.

Running concurrently with Encode is our Engage event. Students will form teams and exhibit their project management and problem-solving skills. Curveballs will be thrown at each team, so they will be challenged to think quickly on their feet and prove to current tech leaders that they are ready to take the reins to become the tech leaders of tomorrow.

For those who miss Elympics and 7-Ate-9, they are back by popular demand! Elympics will include more fun and tech-themed games and the 7-Ate-9 banquet will continue to run from 7-9 pm on Saturday night to conclude the conference!
