Sponsored by FamilySearch, RootsTech 2015 was held February 11–14 at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. The global conference featured an innovator summit, expo hall, well-known keynote speakers, more than 200 classes, hands-on computer labs, nightly entertainment, and a free family history day for Church members.
Formerly called developer day, this technology event was for programmers and technologists to share and collaborate on industry products and projects. This year they had hundreds of technology and family history exhibitors and hands-on tutorial labs. Also available were many sessions of instruction in all areas of family history.
