Tech Jam Schedule 

October '08 Jam

Saturday, October 25, 9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.
IDX Student Center, Champlain College, Burlington

Exhibitors and Demos: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
This October's Tech Jam has an intentional how-to focus. The aim is to help attendees understand what Vermont’s various tech jobs entail. How does a graphic designer transition to web development? Is “biotech” genetic engineering? What does a “Chief Technical Officer” do? Do you have to be a cop to bust pedophiles on the Internet? Is it really possible to build “socially responsible” video games?

Each presentation is 30-45 minutes with a 15-minute break between sessions.

Panel Discussion Schedule:
Time Track #1: Arts & Communication Track #2: Science
10:00 Write for the Web
Be the CTO
11:00 Get Into Games
  • Chris Hancock (owner, Tertl Studos)
  • Amanda Crispel (professor, Champlain College)
  • Heather Kelley (computer and video game designer)

  • Vermont's Top Innovators Honored at Tech Jam 2018

    Social Sentinel, a Burlington-based company that identifies threatening content on social media, was among the winners of the 2018 Tech Jam awards, presented last Friday at the 12th Vermont Tech Jam. The prizes, given annually by the Vermont Technology Alliance, BTV Ignite and Seven Days, recognize leaders in the state's tech ecosystem. The awards ceremony was the culmination of a busy day at the free career and tech expo organized by Seven Days and presented by Vermont Works. Representatives from more than 50 companies and colleges talked with hundreds of attendees who walked the expo floor. Jeff Couture, executive director of the Vermont Technology Alliance, said he talked with job seekers from across Vermont and outside the state at the event, "including someone, suitcase in hand, who visited from North Carolina."
