Tickets are $75 for the general public, and $25 for students and all proceeds go to a charity that’s decided by Woz himself. Space is limited and you need to register before the event, so if you’re into this, go get a ticket! If you have any interest whatsoever in these topics, this event is not something you’re going to want to miss. Really awesome to have this happen so close to us, and I’m excited to listen to what these two have to say about the industry that’s booming in Albany.
