Forge is a conference for people who are creating digital experiences and driving innovation on the web. Where industry difference makers get together and share stories. All in one room. Well, two rooms. Coming to Philadelphia, September 26, 2014.
Creating for the web is hard work. Every win has a story, and every loss a lesson. Succeeding takes talent, passion, and dedication to overcome challenges, hurdles, and roadblocks. Forge Conference is where we share these stories, hit failures head on, celebrate successes, and grow together.
Why you should attend
And don’t worry, we’ll take good care of you while you’re here. There will be food, beer, and an after party. Philly has been home to makers for more than 200 years, and she’s one hell of a hostess.
