Join us at Connectaha, a new software conference focused on inclusive networking and the power of communication.

In just two weeks the Nebraska software community will come together March 8th at the Scott Conference Center in Omaha. Suiter Swantz IP is proud to help sponsor Connectaha 2019 as part of our dedication to fostering innovation in the Omaha community.

“Connectaha isn’t just about the talks you get to see, it’s also about the people you get to meet and the conversations you have. The goal is to connect people in the software community regardless of role, size of company, or experience. Connectaha is a conference that believes there’s power when people talk and that everyone has something to learn and teach.”

The speaker lineup will feature talks on functional programming, QA, design systems, UX, empathy, cybersecurity and more. Our own Scot Ringenberg will speak on “Protecting Your Innovation – Patent Protection and the Patent Process” at 1:30 p.m on March 8. This discussion will focus on intellectual property regarding software, its benefits, the patent and trademark processes, foreign protection, critical timing concerns, and tips for bootstrapping IP protection.
