A previous Black Enterprise hackathon in progress
  • Black Enterprise will recognize the exceptional achievements and contributions of Kenneth and Caretha Coleman, and the godfather of Silicon Valley, Roy Clay Sr., at the Trailblazers Awards Dinner, hosted by Intel. The dinner will begin at 7:30 p.m.
  •  After dinner, it’s back to hacking with the BE SMART Hackathon, from 10:00 p.m. til midnight.

In addition to the above sessions, there will be an Innovation Showcase and Tech Lounge, hosted by AT&T, where you can stop by throughout the day to preview the newest gadgets and devices while receiving one-on-one consultations. Also, don’t’ forget to check out the Corporate Tours featuring AT&T Foundry and Google, from 8:15 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

An imperative attribute to TechConneXt is networking. At 4:00 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. attendees may meet in the Terra Courtyard for the ConneXt Reception where you may connect with your fellow techies. This is the perfect opportunity to build relationships and exchange ideas. Take advantage.

If you haven’t done so already, you may still register for the event on-site at Lobby West.
