UC Colleagues,

The countdown is on! We are less than two months away from UC Tech 2023: Resilient, Rising, and Reinspired. This message is chock full of conference info, please share with your networks!

Our big news is that we are excited (and a bit shocked) to report that in-person registration has reached maximum capacity, within three weeks of registration opening! The hub for our event this year is the MLK Student Union, the largest venue we have available on the UC Berkeley campus. We have worked really hard to ensure everyone who wants to attend the conference in person July 17-19 is able to do so; please join the waitlistif you are still hoping to attend in person. Not to worry, as virtual registration is still available, and every session aside from the Welcome Reception and UC Tech Awards will be live-streamed!

Show Your UC Tech Pride

We have created a few items to help you tap into the spirit of UC Tech now and leading up to the conference:

  • Download a UC Tech 2023 Zoom background. Fun fact: If you get everyone in your next Zoom meeting to use “Background1” it creates a kaleidoscope effect that is kind of funky!

  • When you’re hanging out in the UC Tech channel (especially #uctech-conference and/or#events), you can now use our golden bird emoji! While in Slack, just select the emoji icon then search “uc tech” to find our bird in flight.
