Also like last year, in partnership with Nonprofit Technology Resources, we ask attendees to bring any old or outdated laptops or other related computer equipment, to be refurbished and sold to low-income Philadelphians. Donations follow the same specifications of last year.

Even better though, Saxbys Coffee is going to show off its expanded catering menu by providing sandwiches and other light refreshments to make sure you’re full while you learn about some of the best the Philadelphia technology community has to offer.
