Tech Boot Camp (TBC) is an initiative of the Georgia Public Library Service (GPLS) to bring together IT professionals from library systems across the state to share experiences and ideas, allowing participants to explore opportunities made possible by emerging technologies.
TBC is partially assisted with funds from EBSCO and the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) through the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
TBC20 has gone completely virtual with this year's conference via the Whova platform. This website will be a one stop shop for attendees, featuring a schedule for each track, a discussion forum to chat with your favorite techies, and dedicated spaces for each session with Q&A and Chat features. We are also featuring the LitLab—cyber edition with virtual spaces and VR field trips that we love to visit online, amazing new tech that we have our eye on, and lightning talks that can be viewed anytime.
There will be five tracks: access, cybersecurity, grants, tech, and statistics. Each track will have a variety of panels and training workshops. The Access track focuses on increasing access through virtual services and accessibility. The Cybersecurity track takes an in depth look into information security best practices and tools. The Grant track spotlights programming in a virtual world and breaking down the grant application process. The Tech track features cool tech and the ever popular Chrome OS and G Suite workshops. The Statistics track looks at how to gather and report data with a focus on online and broadband services.
