March has passed, which means we welcome a new month and new adventures for the DHF team.
Digital Harbor Foundation will be busy either hosting, running, coordinating, making, or participating in multiple events throughout the Baltimore area. These are places we will have a presence out and about around town in the coming weeks! We hope to see you out there!
*Please keep in mind not all events are free or open to the public.
