Tech & Tea is a time to spill all your tech tea: it is for all folks interested, or at the bare minimum, curious about the tech industry.

This event is for anyone; no matter your flavor of tech tea, or skill level, we would love for you to come and hang out for a couple of hours with some friendly fellow technologists in the bay. This is an opportunity to learn and get to know our vibrant TBC community, also there will be tea and tea-related snacks.

Feel free to come by for the whole thing or drop in when you have time.
A note to TAs: If you are interested in helping out with this event or a future study group, please let us know!

This Tech & Tea is being hosted at Elevate Security https://elevatesecurity.com/ in Berkeley (close to Ashby BART).
"In our almost 40 years of collective experience in the security industry, we noticed one critical thing was missing. While there were many products on the market that focused on technology or processes, none focused effectively on people. Organizations today need all three elements to stand up to the rapidly changing security landscape.

Here at Elevate Security, we’re building the first-ever truly people-centric solution that’s focused on the human element as a core defense strategy for organizations. We envision a world where every employee knows why security matters — and practices it every day. By showing — not just telling — your workers why security matters to them, they can become true security advocates."
