Live Virtual Sessions
The coronavirus outbreak emphasizes the need to bring the best emerging tech solutions into the government, and Dcode is hosting free virtual sessions for our community working on that, even from home. Our series began with urgent topics like improving cyber posture while teleworking and what the government’s Covid-19 response means for tech companies. You can watch those past virtual sessions in the on-demand section below.
Up next, we have some exciting speakers joining us from across the U.S. government to share their perspectives on combating Covid-19, how emerging tech and the government can work together, what affects the pandemic might have on the future, and how to make the most of your fallout funds. Join us!
