Welcome to Thursday.

Tomorrow Sherrell and I fly to D.C. for the Capital One Women In Tech Demo Day hackathon. I’m thrilled to catch up with my good friends in the area as well as be in the same room with incredibly talented developers, entrepreneurs, and tech enthusiasts transforming the industry. I read about these women every day and super excited to see them in action.  If you’re in the area this weekend, there’s still time to register. Click here for tickets and help yourself to the discount code WITDDwithSherrell.

Enjoy today’s Hit List and be sure to take advantage of the latest happenings in the Leads and Opportunities section including ThePLUG’s upcoming webinar with QuHarrison Terry of Redox.
