Yesterday was the Minnesota High Tech Association’s Spring Conference at the Convention Center here in Minneapolis. There’s something about being around hundreds of people with who share the same passions and concerns that gets me energized. I can spend weeks at a time discussing a single topic with a coworker and not get anywhere. But then I meet someone new, address the same topic, and see it in a whole new light. Cloud computing is one such example from yesterday.
I don’t want to pore over the details of the conference. Suffice it to say I had an enlightening, valuable time and I look forward to the next one. If you haven’t had the chance, check out the MHTA. Their mission:
MHTA supports the growth, sustainability and global competitiveness of Minnesota’s technology-based economy through advocacy, collaboration and education.
I also became a part of STEM, a statewide campaign to support the advancement and awareness of careers in science, technology, engineering and math in grades K – 12. Now more than ever, it’s important to spread the word that careers in these fields are challenging, rewarding, and fun, and possible for anyone who puts their mind to it. I highly encourage involvement with both the MHTA and STEM for anyone in related or impacted fields.
