For the first time, faculty and staff can take part in Tech Fair. Now in its eighth year, Tech Fair was launched to connect students with the free, enterprise-wide IT services and support available to them, regardless of major. With Tech Fair becoming a virtual event for 2021, UFIT opened the event up to faculty and staff as well.
In addition to learning about tech services and support available based on primary affiliation, all faculty and staff have a chance to win one of three prizes: a tour of the UF Data Center (home to HiPerGator AI), an Apple Watch Series 3, or a Beats Pill+. This event is a great way to discover free resources for academic, research, and administrative needs, like free file storage and collaboration solutions on the GatorCloud to mobile printing and IT training options. Many services and licenses are underwritten by UFIT so there’s no cost to the UF community.
How do you win? Just complete the 20-question online scavenger hunt tailored to your primary affiliation. Answers can be found on UFIT News or on UFIT’s service pages. Links to the scavenger hunt will go live on https://it.ufl.edu/techfair/ at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 17, and remain open until 5:00 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 19. Anyone with questions about Tech Fair may email UFIT Communications.
