Jan 10: Top Tech Trends at Austin Forum

The Forrest Four-Cast: January 9, 2018

This month’s edition will focus on “Top Tech Trends for 2018 and Beyond.” Attendees will hear a comprehensive overview of key technologies, and then learn how these technologies and others are fueling innovation that is transforming business and society. Speakers include blockchain expert Haydn Shaughnessy and long-time technology architect Jay Williams.

Doors open for the January 10 event at 5:45 pm and the presentation begins at 6:15 pm. The post-presentation reception will begin around 7:30 (and during this networking reception, Haydn Shaughnessy will be signing copies of his new book, Flow: A Handbook for Change Makers, Mavericks, Innovation Activists and Leaders, co-written with Fin Goulding). Location of the Central Library is 710 West Cesar Chavez. Admission to the Austin Forum is free — but, be sure to RSVP via this link.
