OneLogin @ MagmaConf

It's time for our next Sponsor Spotlight! This time around we're gonna check out OneLogin, another of our wonderful Platinum Sponsors.

OneLogin's sponsorship is a unique one - as a Platinum sponsor they will be engaging directly with the conference content, opening the conference with a talk by their VP of Engineering, David Meyer. We're thrilled to have David as one of our speakers and know that his talk will set the right tone for the conference as a whole. Just to give you a sneak peek, the title of his talk will be "Beyond pushing code: How to optimize your career." We love it as a reminder that while we may want coding to be the end all be all, we've got to remember to think big picture too.

Github @ MagmaConf

An illustrious Platinum sponsor, Github has been a supporter of MagmaConf through the ages. We are wonderfully appreciative of the effort and enthusiasm they have put into being a Magma sponsor. We won't soon forget you Github.
