Villager Speaks in Washington DC


I will be in Washington DC on April 24-25 to talk with African American information technology professionals about trends in our industry. The event is free and open to the public. I encourage any villagers living in the greater Washington DC area to come by the event on Thursday night if you have time or inclination. I'll be staying overnight in Arlington, VA. Let me know if there is any chance for an informal meet-up with any villagers while I'm in town...

Good luck with the event. Just like the rest of us, blogging doesn't pay the bills and I bet 99% of us maintain our professions/businesses to give us the time to write.

Awesome, villager! As an IT professional, I would have loved to attend that event, but alas, it's too far for me. I am a systems engineer and I'm excited to see more people of color develop an interest in technology.

If you're ever in the PA/NJ/NY area, let me know.

Is out of line to say you’re looking good! Preach on brother and all the best at the conference.

Regina said...

Good deal Villager! You definately have a voice that needs to be heard.
Peace & Love!

Michael, SheCodes, IW, Rosemarie and Regina - Thanks for the encouragement. There appears to be a chance for me to meet with AAPP and Jose Vilson on Friday morning...

Go for it Villager!!

I actually live nearby, but will be picking up my daughter on the west coast! Blast it!

Take care, have a wonderful time and just do you!

Sheila - I had a great time in Washington DC! The only downside was not having a chance to meet-up with you, AAPP or Jose Vilson. Perhaps next time...
