Special Events - Appian World 2018

Special Keynote Announcement: Hear “The Woz” at Appian World

Date: Wednesday, April 25
We are thrilled to announce Silicon Valley icon and philanthropist Steve Wozniak as our Guest Keynote presenter. Mr. Wozniak, a technology guru, Apple Computer co-founder, education advocate, published author, and Chief Scientist at Primary Data, will share his experience in innovation with the Appian community.

For his integral role in launching the personal computer industry, Mr. Wozniak was awarded the National Medal of Technology by the President of the United States in 1985, the highest honor bestowed on America’s leading innovators. In 2000, he was inducted into the Inventors Hall of Fame and was awarded the prestigious Heinz Award for Technology, The Economy and Employment for single-handedly designing the first personal computer and for then redirecting his lifelong passion for mathematics and electronics toward lighting the fires of excitement for education in grade school students and their teachers.

In addition to sharing his experience in innovation on the Appian World stage, Mr. Wozniak will also meet with participants of the Appian World Hackathon and offer advice on their planned approaches on the problem to be solved.
