Philly Tech Week 2014 presented by AT&T is a week-long celebration of technology and innovation taking place April 4–12, 2014. This year, a group of like-minded individuals, joined together to host a networking affair to celebrate diversity within the tech community.

This event brings together tech people from diverse backgrounds including race, ethnicity, members of the LGBTQ communities and people with disabilities. We invite you to help us make a more creative and innovative tech community by joining the conversation.

There will be food, drink, music, games, prizes and a chance to network with some of the best and brightest diverse people the Philly Tech Scene has to offer.

Let’s crack the brogrammer code!

Our goal is to engage a network of individuals who are willing to support the mission of diversity in the tech community. Through events such as this we hope to encourage businesses, individuals, volunteers, and the community to get involved and support our mission.
