The quick format ensures that you never get bored and gives you the maximum amount of exposure to each one of these unique, amazing communities. There will be beer available! This event is also FREE to attend but requires registration to the Technology Showcase. 3. Panel Discussion: "WNY's IT Talent Marketplace" - 5:00pm to 6:00pm This "All Women" Panel discussion will focus on WNY's IT Talent Marketplace and what you need to do to succeed. Why are so many people getting IT degrees and leaving the area and why are there so many open positions in WNY and employers/recruiters are so challenged to fill them? This event should be attended by all IT/CS/CIS/MIS educators and students as well as anyone looking for a technology job!
