Over the last few years, the NY technology sector has blossomed and flourished. Now Hurricane Sandy has delivered a serious blow to our home city - the city where we've chosen to build, code, and grow our businesses. The NY Tech community has stepped up and collaborated across different organizations to help lead Sandy relief. Yet there is still much more for us to do - both to recover now and to prepare for when the next disaster hits.
On December 1st & 2nd we - the NY Tech community - are coming together as #NYTechResponds for a Sandy Relief Agency Conference, Hackathon, and Sandy Fundraising Campaign Kick-off Reception in New York City. This is your opportunity to take what you do best - designing, developing, and deploying technology - and apply your skills directly to Sandy relief. We hope you will join us.
