What's New on the Technology Horizon?

Christopher Kelbley, Chief Technology Officer, OrangeBoy

Technological advances continue to infiltrate our everyday lives. Kelbley will discuss how technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) and visual recognition software are distinct possibilities for future Savannah enhancements. 

9:30 - 10:15 AM ET

Product Design Snapshot
Paul Westrick, Zer0z

We may be more concerned with what is in our wallet rather than the wallet itself, but Paul Westrick found a way to innovate this common accessory.  He will talk about taking this product from idea to reality, and how the Internet plays a key role in product growth.  

After a brief introduction, we will walk down the street to see Paul's retail space (right next to the OrangeBoy office).

About the Speaker:  Paul applied his product design background with the need for a slim wallet to accompany him on his cycling trips. This need developed into Zer0zz, a retail and online store that offers a cool and hip alternative to the traditional wallet.

10:15 AM - 10:45 AM ET


10:45 - 11:15 AM ET

Building the Savannah Community - Your Feedback

A big next step for Savannah is building the Community in terms of the number of libraries on the platform, as well as the tools to foster it. We look forward to gathering your ideas to help our Community grow and allow you to be more reliant on each other for sharing your issues, ideas and successes.
