Emerging Tech East 2024 (Formerly Philly ETE)


Chariot Solutions, a leading software development consulting firm, announces the return of the 18th annual Emerging Technologies East conference, formerly known as Philly ETE. The conference is scheduled for April 9th and 10th, 2024, and will be hosted at the University City Science Center in Philadelphia.

Emerging Technologies East is one of the largest gatherings of developers on the East Coast. The name change reflects the evolution of the reach of the conference and the content, going beyond Philadelphia’s city limits. This rebranding aligns with our commitment to showcasing the brightest minds and innovations not just in Philly, but across the entire east coast. ETE will still be known for convening the leaders of the software development and tech community to teach and talk, allowing participants to explore how new technologies change software development.
