DigitalOcean invites you to join us for a #PRIDE celebration!
As part of DigitalOcean's 2019 event series, we are hosting some of the brightest tech stars within underrepresented groups while providing a safe space to hear from our community - without the filter.
In today's tech ecosystem, discussions surrounding LGBTQ+ issues are often held without proper representation or within a safe space. On July 11th, we are welcoming a panel of LGBTQ+ technologists to share their stories, including how they got to where they are today as well as their outlook for tomorrow.
The theme is Looking Back, Loving Forward (in Tech).We hope to see you there
