ST. GEORGE – Dixie State College of Utah’s computer and technology program and the Community Education Channel continues their newly established Technology and Entrepreneurship series on Wednesday, March 14, will feature a presentation on PHP/MySQL/JQuery Tech Development by DSC student Bryan Poulsen, at 12 p.m., in the Boeing Auditorium in Room 121 of the DSC Udvar-Hazy Business Building.

The forum is free and open to the public to attend in person and will be available through live stream (accessible on mobile devices and desktop) at www.dixie.edu/live.

Poulsen’s presenting on the transparency of the web and how to implement resources from Facebook, including videos, photo albums, and even re-mapping of Facebook into your own website. He will show examples of projects he has implemented and will provide links to downloads of code samples.

According to DSC CIT Professor Eric Pedersen, the new series will introduce students and the public to a wide array of presenters who are successful entrepreneurs, developers, programmers, and designers who are coming to share what they feel is most relevant and important based on their experience. He noted that the series is a great opportunity for anyone interested in tech entrepreneurship and development to learn from those who have been successful and who are willing to share their insights, experiences, and perspectives.

“One of the things that is really interesting in the delivery of the technology and entrepreneurship events is that these events will be streamed live to mobile devices as well as be available to desktop computers and in person,” Pedersen said. “We are excited about the technical capability to deliver top quality events that are streamed live, available on demand after the event, as well as be a part of the in person experience.”

The new DSC Technology and Entrepreneurship Series will become a bi-monthly event held on Wednesdays during Dixie State’s 2012 spring semester. For further information on DSC’s Technology and Entrepreneurship Event Series, please contact Pedersen at 435-652-7977 or at [email protected].
