Seattle Tech Meetup

Seattle Tech Meetup is the heart of Seattle tech where you'll connect with smart, fun, creative people from across the full spectrum of our tech community.  

We'd love you to join us to experience Seattle's largest ongoing monthly event.  On the 2nd or 3rd Tuesday of every month you'll enjoy great food and drinks, learn about new companies doing cool things, laugh, smile, and have a fun night out.  And most importantly, you'll discover the people, partners, organizations, and resources to help you to build your dreams.

We believe that the Greater Seattle Area has the greatest tech community in the country, and the more we support our full tech ecosystem the more greatness we'll all experience and create together!

It's your community, we just love it and give everyone a place to play together.  This month, we're featuring the following Seattle companies doing great things with new technology:

    Great event! It was my first Meetup in Seattle after moving in the night before. Will definitely be there at the Sept one. Thanks Red and Greene!

  • Karl J Weaver 魏.

    By the way, I want to thank Red again for his kindness and consideration to let me evangelize important mobile technologies to all you software technie types and allowing me to annouce my next speaking gig, because honestly, I believe the engineering talent in this software-centric region of WA State forget that right now we have two companies that technically develop Smartphones for mobile Payments: Amazon and Microsoft/Nokia Team. I created my own meet-up group called NFC-Payments-TEE Security specifically to discuss these technologies because I know soon the flood gates on these European centric-standards and protocols mobile tech will open wide.

    August 20

  • Karl J Weaver 魏.

    I spoke briefly last night, most of you heard something and I hope you consider to attend my cutting edge mobile tech presentation on August 27th, and if Apple iPhone 6 does include NFC, you'll really want to know more!

    Karl J. Weaver, Newport Technologies will deliver a enlightening presentation on the growth of HCE – Host Card Emulation for NFC Mobile Payment Smartphones in the Cloud! Hyperlink:

    Host Card Emulation – Opening NFC Mobile Payment Smartphones to the Cloud! Karl will explore exactly what Host Card Emulation is, where it came from, invited by Seattle FinTech Meetup Group on August 27th (6:00PM-8:00PM) to present @ WeWork, on South Lake Union, Seattle: Web site: | Mobile:[masked] | Email: [masked]

They include a comprehensive identity system (naming, positioning, tagline and logo, along with a discreet number of hours set aside for strategic coaching) for $4750 and a premium package that also includes a basic launch website for $9750. Over the past 25 years these entrepreneurs have worked with companies such as HBO, Time-Life, A&E, Quaker Foods & Gap, to early-stage companies in industries spanning technology, professional services and retail to consumer goods manufacturing. Most recently they created brand positioning and a complete website overhaul for Marley Coffee ( Yah mon!
