I got this announcement about the CS & IT symposium held in conjunction with NECC again this year and thought I should share it. Yes, I’ll be there and yes, I’ll be presenting. Anita Verno and I will be talking about certifications in computer fields that students can work towards. It should be a good event – all the previous ones have been.

More than half of the spots are already filled for the 2009 Computer Science and Information Technology (CSIT) Symposium!
