LIStnet Events

Dear Students,

LIStnet stands for Long Island Software & Technology Network. It’s an association of computing/IT professionals and organizations on Long Island. LISTtnet events are excellent venues for networking, especially if you’re looking for jobs/internships on the Island.  Even if you’re not actively looking for opportunities, they frequently have guest talks on new and emerging tech. I’ve posted below a couple of their upcoming events.  If they fit your schedule, I urge you to attend them.
