Ladies and gentlemen, it finally happened. Last Thursday I attended the inaugural event for the Philadelphia Business Journal’s Top IT Pros of 2013.
As I mentioned a couple months ago, I was nominated and won in the Startup Tech Stars category. The Top IT Pro award was created to recognize individuals in the Philadelphia community who work tirelessly in the area of technology to make new things, shake up the norm, and build amazing technology products.
