From this month, DC tech is finally getting what it has been missing all along: the ability to shout and throw popcorn on the screen.
November 17, Dallas’ Digital Fight Club brings its virtual “battle” event for technical experts to DC. Professional and IT service company Accenture and Northern Virginia Tech Council (NVTC) is a co-sponsor of the event, which is produced by the Dallas event company The event nerd. The event starts at 19.00
The aim of the event is to host a panel discussion in a breathtaking event style, where two tech leaders walk side by side with opening statements, rejections and time for questions from the judges. The virtual audience can create a virtual “couch” with friends to watch the event, and network enthusiasts can move in between. Judges and the audience can choose the winners in real time after the discussions.
Digital Fight Club started in Dallas in 2016 and has since added events in cities including Boston and Atlanta.
