Success in Seattle at ODTUG Kscope19

ODTUG Kscope in Seattle was once again a successful event thanks to all of our attendees, speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors! Starting off with another successful Community Service Day at the Pike Market Food Bank, we helped the local community of Seattle while also raising over $5,000 for this amazing organization. We then kicked things into full gear with five days packed with educational sessions, networking, announcements, and little bit of fun. We can't wait to do it all over again. We look forward to seeing everyone in Boston for ODTUG Kscope20!
