      Bridging The Gap: Tech Fest a community-oriented technology training company will host a one of a kind Bridging The Gap Technology Festival in Dallas. The goal of this event is to expose innovation and technology trends to DFW.  The Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex technology job market is booming.The Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex is home to over 10,000 corporate headquarters, making the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex the largest corporate headquarters concentration in the United States. This also has resulted in the growth of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, home to American Airlines, the largest airline in the world, and the rapid population growth of the metropolitan area, the fourth largest in the United States. People in the IT field are among the highest salaries in the DFW area. Although there are many jobs, there aren't as many local qualified candidates.  Due to the lack of trained IT professionals, companies oftentimes go outside of DFW and sometimes outside of the US just to find qualified talent. Although there are many jobs here, people aren't necessarily being trained to satisfy the needs of the positions. The purpose of this event is to help Bridge that Gap! We want to expose DFW to the wonderful opportunities in IT.  we want to show the variety of opportunities in the technology industry. We want to inspire local residents to explore innovation.
