The goal for Blacks In Technology Los Angeles (BIT-LA) is to create a vibrant community of like-minded African American technology professionals, innovators and enthusiasts who are working with or interested in Web-based and related technologies. We’re talking the whole techie gamut from bloggers, digital media specialists, community managers and web masters to web designers, social media strategists, developers, online marketing experts, recruiters, software developers and project managers.

And of course the doors are wide open for those folks who are simply just passionate about all things technical.

We will meet regularly at least once a month for fun socializing and high level talks on the technology topics. We plan to feature educational meetups to learn latest technical developments in fields of interest. We also look forward to hosting mashup events with many of the multitude of great tech groups based in Los Angeles.

We also plan to participate in local startup events and help bring together Los Angeles-based developers and web entrepreneurs for possible business opportunities.

We feel this will be an excellent venue to exchange ideas and talk about web technology, innovation, open source, share our knowledge and experience with one another. Tell us how technology is changing the world. Anyone interested in tech is welcome!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
