A Busy Weekend For Techies In Indianapolis
By StrangeWork.com: This weekend is an extremely busy weekend for local Indianapolis tech enthusiasts! Startup Weekend Bloomington and BarCamp Indy both take place this weekend. I am planning on attending both events and am excited to announce that SnapFoo.com is an official sponsor of both events!
Startup Weekend Bloomington
When: February 8-10, 2008
Where: City Hall, Bloomington
What to expect: Chaos at its best! Startup Weekend is a gathering of local small business entrepreneurs who work together to create a new startup company from start to finish.
Founders work together to create an idea and turn that idea into reality in 72 short hours. Participants are all equal founders in the newly developed startup.
I was able to attend Startup Weekend West Lafayette and couldn’t wait for Startup Weekend to come back!
When: 9am-2pm on February 9th, 2008
Where: Unleavened Bread Cafe
What to expect: Some really exciting presentations given by extremely knowledgeable members of the Indianapolis Tech industry.
Presentations include Going Green with Technology by Rajan Chandi, Linux Desktop: Making the Switch by Pascal Calarco, and The Future of Mobile Web which I will be presenting.
I’m really looking forward to meeting many of my local digital friends, who until now I have only communicated with over the web. I also plan on live streaming the entire weekend on Ustream.tv so be sure to check back on Friday for the links!
Indiana is finally heading down the right road for technology and this weekend is driving the bus!
