Vermont 3.0 Panel Previews 

So, we've got 13 different panel discussions going on at Saturday's Vermont 3.0 Creative Technology Career Jam at Champlain College. I've been writing blog posts about them because I helped organize the panels, and am moderating several of them. Also because I think they're really interesting.

Here are four more of these panels at a glance:

So, You Wanna Build Websites... David Gibson, Frank Canovatchel and Gahlord Dewald address the website design and development biz. David owns Propeller Media Works, Frank teaches at Champlain College and Gahlord works for Union Street Media. All three of these guys represent important local web design entities. If you're interested in this field, you've probably thought about working at Propeller or Union Street. And you may have taken classes at Champlain. Their panel is at noon in the Hauke Center Conference Room.

So, You Wanna Solve Cyber Crimes... There aren't a ton of jobs in the digital forensics field in Vermont... yet. And the ones that exist aren't exactly high profile. The people doing these jobs don't always want everyone to know what they're doing — mainly because they're trying to stop identity theft and internet crimes against children — but our three speakers are fairly high profile guys. Gary Kessler of Champlain College is essentially the go-to resource for journalists who need quotes about online security and investigations. Sgt. Kris Carlson works on this beat for the Burlington Police Department. And Fred Lane is a ubiquitous author and expert witness, who occasionally turns up on network TV — i.e. Jon Stewert's "Daily Show." He's also a Burlington school board member. This one's at noon in the Alumni Auditorium.

    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."
