Webinar with SAIC Vice President of Practice Highlights Partnership With Chapter

In July, the chapter in partnership with SAIC launched an educational webinar featuring guest speaker SAIC Vice President of Practice Bob Ritchie.

At the beginning of the webinar, Chapter President Angela Alexander-Mendoza provided chapter announcements and introduced the Chapter Chairman of the Board, Martin Harbolt. Harbolt announced that in partnership, SAIC and the Gold Vault Chapter provided a $5,000 donation to the Heartland Food Bank in Elizabethown, Kentucky. This action provided 40,000 meals to families and students who were displaced from their jobs and schools due to Covid-19. Harbolt then introduced SAIC Vice President of Practice Bob Ritchie.

In this webinar, Ritchie presented an informational session about how cloud-native development can bring application agility and the corresponding benefits of modernizing government legacy applications through a variety of development techniques. Ritchie leads SAIC's software practice and brings a combination of commercial leadership and government services expertise. He is responsible for strategy and investment in software solutions; the development, integration, and sustainment of software applications; and the migration of legacy code and apps to new environments. Ritchie earned his Bachelor of Science in computer engineering from Virginia Tech and holds eight Amazon Web Services Certifications.
