Last week I had the privilege of speaking on a panel at Bellevue College for the “Careers in IT: The Real Story” event.  It was hosted by The Center of Excellence for Information and Computing Technology at the Carlson Theater at Bellevue College in Bellevue Washington.

Franklin Donahoe, Director, Information Security and Compliance for Costco delivered the keynote talk.  Then we spent a couple hours talking to a theater full of teens about tech jobs and how they could get involved.  It was a lot of fun, and I was very impressed by the quality and quantity of questions the teens asked.  I think many of them left authentically excited about what a career in a tech related industry could be.

Full video of the event will be up next month at
