Like many other organizations, the Ocala I.T. Pros saw a lot of changes starting in 2020 as in-person meetings were no longer advisable and online meetings proved to be unsatisfying. For this reason, we started a free Slack workspace to enable our members to continue collaborating and sharing ideas 24/7. This became our primary networking space but it was never quite the same.
Now, Nathan Gauger of Blue Heron CPAs is picking up the torch and going forward with his own group, Data and Developers. I’ve had the pleasure of attending the first two meetings and I’m hoping this will be the successor to the Ocala I.T. Pros, building on our experience, learning from our mistakes and providing more opportunities for local tech experts to learn and fellowship.
If you are part of the tech community in Ocala or the surrounding areas, I hope you’ll join us on Monday nights from 5 – 7. If you can’t make it exactly at 5, that’s okay. The first half hour or so will be general discussion and we’ll allow some time for everyone to arrive before starting any presentations.
The Slack workspace for the Ocala I.T. Professionals is still online and also serves the Data and Developers group. If you would like to join our workspace, please send a request through the form below and you will receive an invitation with a link through which you can sign up.
Hope to see you there!
