The following piece was written by Chad Fernandez, part of our Executive Team. Chad and other students who are also part of the e-Business Student Association had the opportunity to visit Digifest 2015 on May 7th, 2015.
What an inspiring festival! Digifest 2015 was truly a digital experience that I would recommend to any student that is interested in technology, business, art or anything in between. There was such a wide range of activities from virtual reality gaming to drone flying. The guest speaker line-up was remarkable! Each speaker shared his or her experiences in the many unique industry that make up the digital world. Subjects like crypto currencies and its development in the financial sector to a bacteria detecting device used to help diabetes patients in the healthcare industry are just some examples of the diverse material the guest speakers covered in their talks. All in all, this festival has not only broadened my knowledge of the vastness of the digital world, but it has also made me better understand, and prepare for the things to come in the future. I found the biggest problem during the entire festival was deciding which talk or activity to participate in because each one was as interesting as the next.
