    In the spring of 2020 many businesses began doing what only months earlier would have seemed both unthinkable and impossible. Even today when people set up a meeting many times the assumption is that the meeting will be a virtual one. We have gone from a society where remote work was rare to being mandatory and now back to being an acceptable alternative.

    Americans entering the workforce today don’t remember a day when there were no mobile phones, most employees do not recall working without access to the internet.  Computing power and the speed we can move data has increased dramatically over time. These changes could spell a shift in how we hold meetings and interviews in the near future.

    Imagine meeting with your colleagues not in a physical conference room but in a virtual room. Today we can create an avatar that looks similar to the person it represents in a room that is much like a physical one. This is not science fiction; it is happening now. How will this change our lives, our business practices, our rules of conduct? Our discussion will address these changes in technology and how we can be ready for this change.

    Peter La Monica currently serves as the Department Chair and Associate Professor of the Computer Science Department at Manchester Community College.

    Mr. La Monica began his programming career in the late 1970s developing training modules, including train-the-trainer software for operators of a nuclear power plant. He has continued to develop computer related training for technology instructors, resellers as well as developing training for the more technology challenged. He has been teaching part-time at various colleges and corporate training centers since 1982. 

    In 1980, Mr. La Monica shifted his attention to government agencies, where he continued to develop trainings throughout his IT career. Because of his talent for pushing the boundaries of technologies, often developing methods not envisioned by the designers, he was tasked in 1990 with the dismantling of a large multistory data center in NY City, converting it to administrative offices.   

    Mr. La Monica switched his talents to Computer Forensics in 1993 and became an expert computer forensic analysis for the USPIS, as he was a pioneer in mobile device analysts. He assisted federal, state and local law enforcement agencies with computer and mobile forensics and was a key contact for criminal investigations for crimes against children, mail fraud and other crimes involving IT. He completed more than 400 computer forensic and cell phone analyses rising to the position of assistant Laboratory Director. 

    In 2012, Mr. La Monica left federal service to take a position that would allow him to teach the next generation of technology experts by joining the Manchester Community College staff as a full-time Associate Professor where he developed the highly successful Cybersecurity Investigations program which launched at the same time he was appointed to the position. In 2013, he became Chair of the Computer Science Department and has since built a reputation for forward thinking in the College and the larger New England area, as he successfully expanded the Computer Science and Innovation Degree, the Cloud Services degree program, and is currently working in the fields of AR/VR and Artificial Intelligence to further expand MCC’s program offerings and collaboration with industry partners.
