NOLATech Week Opens Preregistration

NOLATechWeeklogos-03 copyNOLATech Week, a community weeklong event created by the people for the people, has officially opened preregistration. The inaugural event, scheduled for October 7th through 12th, 2013 is planning to feature a range of events including: panels, meetups, speakers, competitions, demonstrations, job fairs and social events.

Local nonprofits, businesses, organizations and community groups have banded together to make this a historical, annual event.

Event organizer Jason Seidman said, “We are creating NOLATech Week for the entire city. Our goal is to highlight all the incredible ways New Orleanians are developing and using technology to better our lives and our community. We started this as a small group of volunteers, but we’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response we’ve already seen from local nonprofits, businesses, and organizations–as well as the incredible event partners that have joined in this effort. We’re excited to help bring attention to the important work that is taking place right here in New Orleans.”

Attendees can preregister now through this link. All events during NOLATech Week are free to attend and open to the public, although a suggested donation of $5 can be made. All donations will go to a local charity chosen by attendees at the closing night party on October 12th.
