Ahoy matey! Participants will be cast away from daily duties and will have braved the seas of traffic to converge with other tech savvy castaways at TxDLA, a conference that is full of technical treasures! It may seem like a wild “GooseChase” but volunteers will be ready to guide attendees along the way. Attendees will island hop to enjoy the fun and games with knowledgeable TxDLA vendors, and participate in a treasure hunt using the GooseChase mobile app. Participants will also discover their fellow "buccaneers" by connecting at the TxDLA Regional group table.

"Book 'em, Danno"! After a day of soaking up knowledge at marvelous sessions, conference attendees can soak up the “rays” – "Hawaii Five-O–style" with a game of laser tag! Battlefield LIVE is back after popular demand from the first TxDLA Laser Tag games at the Houston conference. Flip-flops, sunglasses, and surf boards are optional. After a little friendly completion, it will be time to relax and enjoy the beats on the street with the ever-popular TxDLA musicians!
