Navigating the future of work. Learning how to fight against burnout. Taking on cybersecurity threats.
Gathering community. Connecting with old colleagues. Making new friends.
The 2022 GeekWire Summit had it all — and lived up to our mantra: What happens here matters everywhere.
In Seattle and online during our flagship annual conference this week, we provided a unique vantage point into technology today and innovation that will dictate the future.
Speakers included Julie Larson-Green, chief technology officer of Magic Leap; Charlie Bell, executive vice president at Microsoft; Ken Washington, Amazon vice president; U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell; Seattle Mayor Bruce Harrell; and other key leaders and innovators.
