The Wilmington Area IT Professionals Breakfast Panel, scheduled for 7:30-9:15 a.m. on
Feb. 18, will focus on “Status of Software Development and Innovation in Wilmington,” according to an announcement.
Organizers said the topic would be of interest to IT managers, developers and entrepreneurs. The event takes place at University of North Carolina Wilmington’s Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
“Our panelists come from a variety of backgrounds and have experience from working for large organizations to smaller consulting/contracting firms to start up IT industries,” the announcement stated.
Scheduled to sit on the panel are: Tanner Clayton, founder and CEO of WaveRider Design; John Berry, client technical professional with IBM; Forrest Maready, CTO of NextGlass.co; and Ron Vetter, interim associate provost for research and dean of the graduate school at UNCW. Tom Janicki, from UNCW’s information systems, will moderate.
