What is Hartford Tech Week? A week long festival of independently-run workshops and seminars lead by local community tech groups.

Grassroots learning. Volunteer driven. Free.

Why Have Hartford Tech Week?

Professional workshops and seminars are being offered in the Hartford area by grassroots tech groups for little or no cost to the general public. But does the general public know about them?

Techs are siloed into several community groups, all operating independently from each other. Hartford Tech Week is the one week out of the year for these groups to come together as a technology open house to the region with a smorgasbord of workshops.
