This month we’re talking privacy. We’re being joined by some of our members who are participating in AppCon20’s privacy week for some small biz perspective when it comes to privacy and encryption legislation. Speaking of small biz, this week also happens to be small business week and what better way to celebrate than by amplifying the voices of our members!? And of course, we’re going to hit tech history and run though some DC headlines.

This month we’re talking all things AppCon. Yes, you read that right! There are a lot of things that are different about 2020, and AppCon is one of them. We’re still educating policymakers on important issues like TVWS, privacy, platforms, and more, but the way we’re doing it is 100% virtual. We’re joined by OG FOTP (original friend of the pod) and senior director for public policy, Graham Dufault, to talk through our legislative priorities and what you can expect this AppCon. We’ll also hear from some of our members who participated in the Congressional App Challenge’s Back to School Webinar Series: Download with Developers. And, of course, we’ll be hitting tech history, the top tech headlines in DC, and our random identifiers.
