November 13, 2014 Dinner Meeting - "What's the Deal about Hackathons?"

"What's the Deal about Hackathons?"

The November 13 meeting is going to be exciting and constructive. You need to attend and hear our speaker, Mr. Jeremy Carbaugh, who is going to tell us all about Hackathons.

Hackathons are all the rage these days. From startups to governments, organizations of various types and sizes are sponsoring coordinated coding events. Is a hackathon right for your organization? Jeremy will explain the benefits and drawbacks of hackathons and things you should consider before organizing one.

Jeremy is a proponent of open source software and an active participant in the community.  

Potential members and guests are welcome at our monthly meetings.  Come and network with your IT peers.   Invite your friends and make your reservations early. 

Bring your coworkers and friends and make your reservations early.  Note the extraordinary price for members and guests.  Alfio’s fine food for a one time discounted price.
