2014 Los Angeles Agenda

From California Technology Festival Wiki

Aspiration events are first and foremost convened to strengthen the ties and social networks of technology practitioners in the non-profit/non-governmental sectors.

Our philosophy centers around getting participants into small-group discussions where they can discuss topics they are passionate about and get answers to their questions and curiosities. Sessions at Aspirations have particular traits; we de-emphasize presentations and lecture, and instead focus on "break-out" sessions that are self-organized whenever possible.

Session times will change, session titles will morph, new sessions will come and and existing ones will go. But this is the latest we know, and we invite your feedback and contributions.
