Why develop.idaho?





Networking at develop.idaho Paul Clarke, Web & Mobile Quality Assurance & Testing Specialist

I liked how easy and great it is to network and meet new technology professionals in Boise.

Speakers Were Excellent Jared Cheney, Senior Software Engineer

The talk on law and software as a service was excellent. The keynote speaker from Zendesk was excellent.


I liked the diverse group of people there to see my product.  The media exposure was fantastic!

Great for Locate Express!! Doug Joseph, Founder & Owner

Locate Express launched over four years ago. The develop.Idaho and Tech Cocktail event was our coming out party.  The opportunity to showcase Locate Express and the associated Tech Cocktail blog write-up was an awesome marketing combination for a startup.  Locate Express is now in Boise, Cleveland and soon Boston and Phoenix through licensing deals with Better Business Bureaus.  I can say it all started with develop.Idaho’s Tech Cocktail event.  Thanks for the great event.
