As the global market leader in live event ticketing, processing +500M ticket transactions per year across 32 countries, our engineering and tech teams are vital to building experiences that delight millions of fans. Our innovative teams have a ton of insight to share. On March 5th – 8th, be sure to catch some of our tech leaders at the 18th annual Southern California Linux Expo (SCaLE 18X), North America’s largest community-run open-source and free software conference. True to our roots of open collaboration and community, we’ll be exploring a broad spectrum of topics and skill levels, including topics like:
