The annual series is hosted by the Military Park Partnership and Newark's Office of Information Technology. The goal of the program is to engage local residents, office workers and students in discussions on technology. Each week will feature different panelists from large tech companies and small startup organizations that will speak about the changing tech world in Newark. After the panels, there will be demonstrations of new tech devices along with networking time.
