For the last three decades, the technicians at Capital Network Solutions have been protecting the health and security of Sacramento business networks.  However, our commitment to supporting Sacramento extends beyond our managed IT services plans.  We also support nonprofit organizations like the Children’s Law Center of California, which represents foster children throughout Sacramento County.

Furthermore, we are continually looking for opportunities to learn more, always seeking to expand our technology toolset.  Therefore, we love promoting Sacramento technology events, including seminars, conferences, classes, lectures, youth camps, certification tests and more.

In this post, we highlight a handful of the top local technology events happening in the Sacramento area this month.  Click the title to learn more each event on its official Eventbrite page.
