NASA believes that mass collaboration is key to creating and discovering state-of-the-art technology.

The International Space Apps Challenge aims to engage participants in developing innovative solutions to our toughest challenges. Register here for the challenge.

The Women in Tech Summit will bring together women who will support, challenge and empower other women at all stages of their careers. Panels and talks plus workshops to learn technology skills. This year, the event will feature top notch keynote speakers and workshops addressing UX, Cloud, Mobility, App Development, Security Social and Big Data.

The theme is “if only you knew!”; the goal will be to make sure attendees know what information, technology and partnership is available to them and how far they can go with that knowledge. The Women in Tech Summit supports the Techgirlz organization and all proceeds from this year’s event will go toward assisting the charter of Techgirlz.

Philadelphia’s technology community has lots to offer the region, country and the world. Philly Tech Week aims to facilitate as many crossovers between industries as possible. Artists, designers, business people, students, government and everyone in between will be participating in Philly Tech Week.

Philly Tech Week is organized by Technically Philly, a news site that covers the people who use technology to make Philadelphia a better place to live.
