The Meetup: Tech Talks and Live Comedy, April 9 at 6:45 p.m.

Sketches and interviews and stand-up, oh my! This meetup truly has it all: a blend of technology wisdom and a little good-natured techie ribbing.

Perhaps the event says it best, “it’s like a tech meetup...only way more fun.”

 

Intro to 3D Printing & Design @ Voodoo, April 10 at 6:30 p.m.

Learn Blockchain Development with J.P. Morgan’s Quorum, April 11 at 6:30 p.m.

Finally, did you know that in addition to these amazing skills and newfound knowledge, there will also be pizza at this workshop? Mind = blown.

 

Launching Your App: Mobile Advice for Startups, April 12 at 6:30 p.m.

At this event, founders of some of the hottest mobile apps in recent years — Aaptiv, Citizen and Button — will share their tools and tricks for developing and marketing your app ideas.
