Tech Month Chicago uses a grass-roots approach to promote a technology awareness month consisting of a calendar of local tech events in and around Chicago.  The calendar showcases the depth and diversity of people who are actively involved in creating community and culture surrounding technology.  Elevating awareness around gatherings, educational activities, parties, and other events in Chicago’s tech ecosystem seeks to engage new audiences and enable residents to learn about and celebrate the tech community. Different from tech industry focused events, Tech Month Chicago is aimed at all city residents — including senior citizens, kids, parents, and underserved communities — to share how technology shapes our culture and to encourage participation from those outside the industry. Events will range from coding for kids to educational forums and invention showcases, startup pitches, tech activities for families, digital art and music, company open houses, job training, meet-ups, and festive celebrations. Anyone can organize an event: individuals, local companies based in Chicago, non-profits, schools, tech experts, education groups, artists and more.
