2018 Festival Event:

The Power of Connected

Preparing Atlanta’s Tech Workforce For A Critically Connected Future
Decades ago, sci fi writers described places in which objects were connecting the world and exchanging data about us, our preferences and our lives. Reality has rapidly caught up with this imagined world, and what once was science fiction is now science fact right here in the ATL at the Honeywell Atlanta Software Center of Excellence. In this event, we'll hear from experts across the Atlanta tech community who will dive into what drives our local technology industry and how we can better prepare ourselves for this critically connected future. After the panel, you'll have the chance to ask questions and chat directly with our experts. As a special bonus, we'll be hosting tours of the brand new Honeywell facility where you'll get to see and touch the solutions that Honeywell has created for a critically connected world.
