Hacker News Seattle Meetup 8

The eighth Hacker News Seattle meetup is here! We'll be meeting on Tuesday, April 3rd at 6pm at a new location in downtown Seattle.. SURF Incubator!

Food, beer, and other drinks will be provided, and as always, the event is free.

The speaker this month will be John Cook, cofounder and journalist at Geekwire. I'll be interviewing him about what it's like to run Geekwire - both from an entrepreneur's and a journalists point of view.

    It was great! I'm glad everyone liked the higher quality food (no more pizza!), I'll try to do that again.

    I just wanted to thank one more last minute sponsor:

    Lean Startup Machine is a metrics-driven startup competition where teams are taught how to identify the key risks in launching or scaling their startup venture. There's a great line-up of local experienced entrepreneurs at our first LSM in Seattle, April 13-15. They'll provide hands-on mentorship using our framework of Lean Startup tools and techniques. Use the code "leanhacker" to get 10% off. More info at leanstartupmachine.com
