Eat, Sleep, Drink Interactive Media? Us too. Join us at ImageCon 2018.

Great images and video engage users. And great content can be the difference between success and failure. As a developer, you probably spend not an insignificant amount of time creating, manipulating and optimizing your media to ensure a powerful user experience. The path to engaging content is much more than resizing and formatting. The journey requires good insights and strong data to drive decisions about user consumption. We launched ImageCon for developers and creators like you. Our aim is to host a day where we can come together on all things digital media and learn from other innovative developers and creators who will share their tips, tricks and tools for managing images, video and other forms of media.
