WE17, SWE’s Annual Conference, is Sold Out

The numbers are in and it’s offical—WE17 will be the largest conference in SWE’s history!

WE17 is going to be an incredible experience, but it needs to be a safe experience too—and that means ensuring we don’t exceed the capacity of the Austin Convention Center. So, registration is closed.
