The goal for Dallas Blacks In Technology is to collaborate with the vibrant community of like-minded technology professionals of color -- 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, online community managers, web masters, web designers, social media strategists, developers, online marketing experts, IT recruiters, software developers, programmers, telecommunications specialist, cloud computing experts, IT managers, IT executives, tech-based entrepreneurs, project managers, geeks and nerds!
And of course the doors are wide open for those folks who are simply just passionate about all things technical.
We will meet each month for fun, socializing and high level talks on a variety of 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 Dallas.
We also plan to participate in local startup events and help bring together Dallas-based developers and web entrepreneurs for possible business opportunities. We anticipate that this will also be a hotspot for IT recruiters and IT job seekers to informally share information in a face-to-face setting … learning where the hiring with the Dallas IT industry is currently taking place. 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 … regardless of race or color … interested in tech is welcome!
