Everything You Wanted to Know About Silicon Slopes Summit 2018

From recent attend at Silicon Slopes Summit 2018 I found and get to learn about the tech. It was held in Utah state located in the United States on the western side of the country. At the conference, many people were observed to become the part of the program. In my opinion, there were mostly present entrepreneurs including technology fields.

Silicon Slopes Job:

When the Silicon Slopes 2018 summit started the main question that arises is the number of jobs it could raise for common people. Ryan Smith CEO of  Qualtrics has stated that the trend will grow and the people in the tech community will be successful, just have to relocate to the people of Utha. He also stated that if everyone in Utha can relocate other people then it will create an opportunity for the future generation.

Then the Carine CEO of Banyon has made a system for communication to help the healthcare providers so that they could connect with the patients online. She also showed the stats that by 2024 1.1 million jobs for new technology will be created. But 45 percent of these jobs will be occupied by the graduate students of big educational institute affiliated by Utha Universities. So these are the job-related topics that raised in the summit mostly focusing on the youth of Utha.
