Monthly Tech Meetups - Call for Speakers

HV TechFest brings together people who care about technology. It was the only TechFest / DevFest for the entire Hudson Valley region - annually since 2019. We wanted to get together and explore what's new in technology and what's going on in workforce development field. We wanted to mix tech professionals together to learn from each other, and we wanted to mix businesses with techies to discuss opportunities. We wanted to entice people to attend in person and expose them to GDG / Google technical eco-system.Going forward we'd like to establish the regular schedule with tech talksshowcases (show & tell), career growth workshops (soft skills), and inspirational talks / trends setting. Overall the goal is to have a grasp on the tech industry speed, and help you to choose what you want to focus on next / where do you want to go?

So we are putting together this Call for 2023 Tech Talks! Send us your webinar or talk proposals for our monthly meetings. Slots fill up quickly! The submission form is available at

The best talks will be selected to present at HVTechFest 2023 annual conference.

We also want to see our local CS educators to mix and mingle with tech professionals, while enriching their classes with guest speakers talks and site visits.

So your skills and exposure is in your hands. Apply to present, and make sure to have your Ask for the community ready. It creates a marketplace for buyers and sellers of technology expertise - people who are good at technology and people who want to hire those who are good at technology, or who want to learn from tech experts.

There is a significant mismatch between supply side and demand side in technology, and because of that mismatch the supply chain for tech services and talent pipeline is not only broken,but getting worse. By running HVTechFest we are solving this problem by creating a collaborative space and facilitating innovations.
HVTechFest is the missing link that connects academia, industry, individuals, potential employers, and it offers a space for those that never thought they could be developers.
