    I thought the Boston Technology Showcase was great! I only rated it a 4 star, so I could leave room for future Meetup improvements, or possibly for a company / presentation that I was extremely above normal excited about. I missed the food, but it looked like a pretty good spread :) I thought the location was great as well; however, the parking situation was a little frustrating. If there was any prearranged parking, please let me know. As an NU graduate with atleast 1k+ dollars deep in parking tickets, I should have known better. I will definately try to attend following Meetups and plan extra time for parking. Thank you for providing the opportunity for others to participate and enjoy this much needed platform for experience and success.

    Had to leave at 8:05 to catch the last bus out of town and to try to catch game 1. Really enjoyed the presentations, especially Rifinity, Toco IOS App, and the fighter jet Hanger / oil rig fire sensor application. Great stuff. Great game last night at Fenway!

    Very impressed with the Rifinity group. What was most interesting to me was the method used to build the heat map; I thought they would have used blueprints. Instead, they used the wireless network! Very creative. I was also impressed by the fact that it was led by a group of women. Good to see women out there leading their own operations.

      Thanks for the kind words, Joel! We're glad you found Rifiniti's work interesting. Our staff is pretty diverse in professional backgrounds and is 50% female. We've definitely been able to leverage these different perspectives to get to where we are today.
