Today kicks off the first day of the LDSTech Conference, with a keynote from Clark Gilbert, president and CEO of the Deseret News Publishing Company and Deseret Digital Media, at 5pm MST today in the Riverton Office Buildings Zion room. You can read more about Clark here.
While today’s event is a keynote speech, Thursday and Friday are the heart of the conference. Expect two days of information-packed sessions about Church technology, community sessions for testing and developing Church software, and opportunities to interact with other community volunteers.
Each day starts with a keynote at 8:30 a.m. in the Zion room. Thursday’s keynote will be from Blaine Maxfield, the CIO, and Friday’s keynote by John Edwards, portfolio director, and Michael Carter, CISO.
