Please spread the word and feel free to use the hashtag #TechieTalentShow!Ever wondered what other talents exist in the techie world? Join Techtonica's Techie Talent Show to find out! This event will raise funds for Techtonica’s apprenticeship, an intensive tech training program with living stipends and job placement for Bay Area women and non-binary adults with low incomes.
The purchase of your ticket and any other contributions you choose to make on the night will directly benefit the participants of our apprenticeship program and help increase gender diversity in tech and empower locals in need! 
We’ll have food, entertainment, awards, an auction, a Rubik's cube contest, and much more! You’ll also get to learn more about our January 2018 apprenticeship and mingle with other talented Techtonica supporters. Be ready to have fun while contributing to a good cause! 
The auction will include fun items and services our supporters have donated. Examples include getaways, paintings, and professional headshots.
