Hodges University Hosts 2nd Annual IT Pro Camp on Feb. 27
Hodges University will host the second annual IT Pro Camp from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 27. The event will be held on the Fort Myers campus, which is located at 4501 Colonial Blvd., Fort Myers, FL 33966. Individuals interested in the latest IT-related technologies, as well as those seeking professional development are welcome to attend.
Last year’s event, also hosted by Hodges University, made such an impression on IT Pro Camp officials that Fort Myers was placed on the regular circuit of stops for the organization. With only seven stops made throughout the year in the state of Florida, it is significant for Hodges University to be hosting the event.
Situated in a conference-style learning environment, IT Pro Camp is a free, one-day learning event that serves students, business owners, business decision-makers, IT professionals and others interested in IT technologies.
According to Tracey Lanham, professor and chair of the computer information technology program in the Fisher School of Technology at Hodges University, this year’s event will feature a dual track, allowing attendees to choose which area and associated topics suit their needs. She also went on to say, “My hope is that they will host a MTA Test Fest again this year, which provides Microsoft technology certification to interested individuals at no charge.”
“The Fort Myers and Naples areas are a great place to bring the technology community together. This is the second year that Hodges will be hosting the event, and this event brings people here, to our campus, to see how we promote technology, diversity and inclusion,” said Lanham. Individuals associated with technology companies, technology recruiters and professional businesses are encouraged to participate and sponsor the event.
