Now in its second year, the Catskills Conf comes back to the Hudson Valley October 21-23 at the Ashokan Center. The conference builds upon the success it experienced in its inaugural year and will bring together technologists from both the Hudson Valley and from New York City for a weekend of learning, inspiration, and, above all, immersion.

Speakers include Dennis Crowley, the co-founder of Foursquare, and Matthew Stinchcomb, the founder of the Good Work Institute and Executive Director at Etsy.org, who will speak to what it means to “do good work.” The founders of upstart companies such as Agrilyst, SoundingBox, and Field Company will also speak throughout the weekend.

Apart from the speakers, the conference will offer lively music and late-night entertainment, activities (including hard cider fermentation, instructional on botanical drawing, a plant foraging how-to, and blacksmithing), and plenty of opportunities to be inspired by the woods surrounding the venue.

For more information and tickets go to their Facebook page.
