We hope to connect students to industry folks to network, find jobs, find internships, and learn a bit about how the industry actually works.
Anyone who has a utoronto.ca account can attend, though the day is focused on students in the Department of Computer Science.
We are still figuring out whether or not we can record some of the sessions.
Some speakers cannot allow the sessions to be recorded, however, due to their employer's policy.
We haven't released registration per event-session yet.
For now, please regsiter your interest here.

As we approach March 8th, it will be harder to get people signed up to a session.
That said, we are open to new talks. You can email Julian at julian.nadeau[at]utoronto.ca with details!.
