The Big Transaction is a two-day, single track virtual conference dedicated entirely to the art of payments engineering. Join us in November and learn the best strategies, architectures, tips, and tricks for building high quality payment systems that work at scale!
Building a payment system is no easy feat given the ever-changing needs and regulations for businesses. Yet almost all companies need to deal with these challenges in some form. As such, we want to create a series of talks focused on the monitoring, testing, and architectural strategies that will ensure you can always sleep at night after shipping.
Our conference will feature 12 speakers, with each talking about their own experience on wrangling complexity, solving real-life scenarios, and creating robust and flexible payment systems.
Tickets are on sale now. General Admission tickets are limited so make sure to get yours today!

The Big Transaction is all about sharing knowledge and exploring how to create better payments and billing systems. We feel strongly that the best way to do this is to bring people together in a common space to talk and learn from each other. If any of the examples below sound like you, we think you would really enjoy this conference:
Our dream was for The Big Transaction to be an in-person conference. But with the rise of COVID Delta variant, we no longer felt we could put on an event in November and still keep our attendees safe. And yet, our planned speaker lineup turned out to be so strong that canceling the conference altogether felt like it would be a huge waste of knowledge to the payments engineering community.
So we made the call and turn The Big Transaction into a virtual conference. And though we'd love to meet everyone in person, running a virtual conference comes with some unique benefits. Specifically, without the overhead of a venue, we can pass those savings in ticket costs back to you! As such, our General Admission ticket prices have been reduced to just $30.00!
Our conference will be hosted on AirMeet, which provides many features and options for attendees, speakers, and sponsors alike. We recommend taking a look at this video to get an idea what it's like from the attendee perspective and their features to directly engage with other attendees, speakers, and sponsors.
We support refunds until October 15th, 2021.
All attendees must agree to follow our Code of Conduct to ensure our conference is safe and welcoming for everyone.
If you have questions for us about anything at all, feel free to email us anytime. We are dedicated to being as open and transparent as possible to ensure all attendees have a fun and safe conference experience!
