The Trenton Computer Festival has been providing a weekend of computer education through lectures and demonstrations to the general public for 33 years. Three years ago TCF was added a Friday service for the professional information technology community. This year there will be two days of technical and IT management training.
The TCF IT Professional Conference will take place on Friday, April 24, at TIME at the College of New Jersey, and continue on Saturday, April 25, sharing lectures with the general speaker tracks of the festival. These Saturday talks will be open to all TCF attendees.
The IT conference will provide a technical track will feature talks on software development and network technologies, given by leading authorities in the IT industry, and a management track, which will cover staffing and legal issues.
One of TCF’s most successful activities, the Friday lunch (provided by TCF), will include a networking session designed to introduce attendees and speakers to each other and encourage communications between everyone.
The specific agenda (list of talks, speakers, and their biographies) for the TCF IT Professional Conference can be found on the TCF web site, www.tcf-nj.org, or by visiting www.acm.org/chapters/princetonacm/tcfpro. You can also register for the IT conference on either site.
Registration for the Friday IT Professional Conference is separate from TCF, but also includes admission to TCF with its commercial sales exhibits, outdoor flea market, robotics contest, hands on demonstrations and much more.
The TCF Professional IT Conference is co-sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the joint Princeton chapters of the IEEE Computer Society and the Association for Computing Machinery, as well as U.S. 1.
