BIT Founder Greg Greenlee commented, “We listened to our community and we are excited to finally bring them a conference that they can be proud of as engineers, innovators, and entrepreneurs. The BIT conference is a celebration of the women and men who not only helped to build our incredible community, but are also doing amazing work in the technology industry that would normally go unrecognized. We are compelled as an organization, to provide a space and a platform for them, so their voices are elevated and heard.
