Inspire Conference 2022: Post-Conference Wrap Up

March 21, 2022

Our inaugural Inspire Conference 2022, hosted by the department of Applied Computer Education, was a roaring success. We had well over 700 participants in attendance, incredible engagement, and many new connections made. The success of our conference would not have been possible without all the generous time and help we received from our student volunteers and our many friends and contacts in industry. Many thanks to the conference co-chairs (and instructors!) for coordinating efforts, attracting talent, and executing this year’s Inspire Conference: Laurie Cutrone and Manuel Castellon!

If you missed the conference or wish to watch a session you were unable to attend, we have most of our sessions recorded and available for replay on our YouTube playlist.
