More than one hundred residents, small business owners, and nonprofit leaders attended the Spring 2013 Community Broadband Summit on May 18, 2013. It was a day dedicated to hands-on technology learning for personal and organizational growth.
The Summit featured a video welcome by Mayor Vincent C. Gray, remarks by DC Chief Technology Officer Rob Mancini and Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie, expert workshops, and a panel discussion.
Digital DC: Technology Matters! was designed to improve participants’ ability to integrate technology into their everyday lives and organizations, and serve as a platform to connect participants with technology resources and training for months and years to come.
