Trenton Computer Festival 2013

The 38th Annual Trenton Computer Festival (TCF) will be held one month from today, i.e., Saturday, March 16, 2013 from 9:00am - 5:00pm. The venue will be at The College of New Jersey.

This will be year #2 in which TCF has gone from a Saturday/Sunday event to only one weekend day, Saturday.  This was due to ever-increasing costs relative to the income realized from running such a show.  As you may know, computer shows have seen a decline in attendance over the past 20-or-so years.

However, what makes this show different from others is the suite of talks that are available for a modest $10.00 price-of-admission.  I always say there's something for everyone at TCF as the talks aren't just for tech-savvy or IT professionals.  This year, there are tracks on Microsoft, Robotics, Apple, Games, among others.  I will be conducting a series of talks in my own track, Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) University.  Look for a separate blog post for details!

The keynote speaker at TCF this year is Frank O'Brien, the Solar System's Ambassador for NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.  His keynote is entitled, Roving Robots on Mars: The Journey of Curiosity.

This will be year #8 for the TCF IT Professional Conference that is held on the Friday before normal TCF activities.  I have spoken at this conference for the first seven years and hope that my Getting Started with Meteor talk will be selected for 2013.  Stay tuned...

I hope you will consider attending or even volunteering at TCF 2013.
