Here is an update from TechCafe...
If you are counting, this is the first event of the year! We've been busy (as you may have noticed if you are a regular reader). We still love putting on tech events in Seattle though!! If you are itching for great events in between TechCafe events you should check out the events at Surf Incubator and Hub Seattle. We feel great that the community is growing here and are honored to be a part of it!
At TechCafe we work with awesome startups and technology companies to offer brilliant technologists a few things for free. Sure you'll be stuck in Appature's slick offices. Yes you will have to participate a little in the technical talk at the event or at least listen to the discussion that Derek Slager (VP of dev at Appature) will lead.
Derek's talk will explore "Life in the post-jQuery world", and some of the challenges of evolving a very large client side application. This should be an interesting topic for anybody building modern web-based applications at scale.
You will also meet some other interesting developers, program managers, designers, entrepreneurs, etc. So there is a price to pay to drink the free beer and eat the free food. You will also hear about a job opening or two at Appature... Did I mention that Appature has announced their sale to IMS? Well you'll likely hear more about this as well.
In case you haven't been following TechCafe over the years, Appature has sponsored an even EVERY year for the last five years of TechCafe's existence. That means they have been giving free food and beer to startupers and technologists for years and are doing it again. Over here at TechCafe - we can't imagine the Seattle technology community thriving without companies like this supporting the community.
So join TechCafe for an early happy hour at Appature to talk tech and meet some great peers in the industry.
Registration details are on the Attend the next event page.
This year, TechCafe is also partnering with the Seattle Angel Conference. If you are a new Angel and are not participating (you should be). If you missed the deadline to pitch to the group - there will be another opportunity in the fall. If you want to attend the conference (May 16th)itself where the six finalists will pitch go sign up . If you are interested in sponsoring a part of the event, there is always room for more sponsors.
If you are interested in hosting/sponsoring a TechCafe in the future, don't hesitate to reach out. Please forward this invite to great people in the community that you think would be interested in attending or sponsoring in the future, our tech community is growing and you are a part of it.
We are looking forward to connecting with you at this TechCafe event or a TechCafe in the future.
