The Ocala I.T. Professionals is an I.T. networking group for technology professionals from all areas of the field including programmers, technicians, support staff, management and more. Our main goal is to assist in the growth and development of Ocala’s I.T. community. Our mission is three-fold …
• To provide a professional and social networking forum for technology professionals in the Ocala / Marion County area where ideas and technologies can be shared.
• To create a link between the local I.T. and business communities in order to provide career and entrepreneurial opportunities for local I.T. talent.
• To function as a hub for other, more focused, I.T. groups in Ocala and the surrounding areas, providing assistance with cross-promotion and activities.

If you're a web developer, we want to hear about whether you prefer PHP or ASP.NET and why.

This will also be a group for people who want to become actively involved giving presentations, working with other members on projects and even helping to organize meetings and take on a leadership role. So, no matter what you do in I.T., whether you're fixing hardware, programming the latest online sensation or still trying to find your niche, we want to meet you!
