Help Us Support Technology and Diversity


To help support diversity in the technology community, while Velocity registration is open, we're raising funds to send to NCWIT, the National Center for Women & Information Technology. Please consider joining us in supporting this worthy organization by making a modest donation when you sign up. O'Reilly Media will match those donations at the end of the conference.
