The goal for Black Technology Professionals BTP-NY is to create a dynamic community of like-minded Black technology professionals, innovators, and enthusiasts who are working with or interested in existing new and emerging technologies. To that end, we have become one of the largest meetups for “Techies of Color”. We’re talking the whole techie gamut from big data, bloggers, data scientists, DevOps, digital media specialists, community managers and webmasters to web designers, social media strategists, developers, online marketing experts, tehnology recruiters, software developers, project managers, IT managers, system architects, engineers, and administrators. And of course, the doors are wide open for those folks who are simply just passionate about all things technical. Black Technology Professionals will meet regularly at least once a month for fun socializing and high level talks on various technology topics. We plan to feature educational meetups to learn the latest technical developments in a wide array of technologies. We also look forward to host joint events with many of the multitude of great tech groups based in New York City and beyond. BTP also plans to participate in local startup events and help bring together New York based developers, tech entrepreneurs and venture capitalists for possible business opportunities. We feel this will be an excellent venue to exchange ideas and talk about technology, innovation, open source, share our knowledge and experience with one another. Tell us how technology is changing the world. Anyone interested in technology is welcome!
