working at home

Philadelphia is a hub of innovation—the headquarters for countless corporations that are pioneering technological advances and the site of abounding ideas and imagination. All of that cutting-edge creativity comes together for nine days of activities this spring that will be thrilling for techies and inspiring even for those without any tech know-how.

Philly Tech Week takes over the city April 27-May 5, including with a number of events near your Edgewater apartment. The eighth-annual festival is grouped into a number of different tracks, with events for developers, those focused on civic engagement, business-focused discussions, tips on how to harness the power of social media for personal and professional use and much more.

Here are a few of the highlights:

10-Minute Web Clinic: From 1-4 p.m. April 30-May 4, pop into Hussian College, one mile from your Edgewater apartment, for some free web advice.

Participants will receive a report on their organization’s current search-engine optimization and a checklist of suggestions for improvements.

The conference will be held 9:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m. April 30 at World Café Live, a half-mile from your Edgewater apartment.
