People make the net work.  With some of the brightest minds converging at GHC, we’ll have no choice but to break out of our shells and connect.  So here are some more tips on having a great GHC experience.

☐    Take a good notes. There are some pretty cool apps out there to help you organize yourself as well via your mobile devices as well. Evernote for note-taking.  Failing that, get a good notepad or binder.

☐    Ask attendees for their local contact information while at the conference. Then follow-up! Some of the best discoveries I’ve made have come from linking up with other conference-goers on events and activities I wouldn’t normally attend.

☐    Link up with your local ABI community groups for updates on extra-conference events. Here at the Black Women in Computing virtual offices, we are planning two awesome pre and post conference events this month. Are these on your radar?

October 10, 2015 – HBCU Tech Inclusion @ Texas Southern University

October 17, 2015 – BWiC Gaming Workshop @ Prairie View A&M University

☐    Have any burning questions? Make a list of these and pose it to the groups in your workshops or at general sessions. If these are well thought out, your fellow attendees will thank you for it.

☐    Have a passion for something? Health informatics or Neurorehabilitative models, anyone? Geek out. Share your interest and expertise to date at the conference or via posts on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, your Blog and let us know what you’re sharing so we can give a shout out.
