All- the entrance is on Warren street, just walk up the stairs on the ramp to get inside. Once you walk inside you will see a stair case to the right, walk down stairs one floor and you'll see us in the big open space.
This event is a tech & entrepreneur extravaganza hosted by a consortium of local tech and entrepreneur groups. Leaders and members of NJIT, GDG North Jersey, Scarlet Startups, Brick City Tech, Code for Newark, Lean Startup Newark, GalleryRetail and LaunchNJ will be presenting and in attendance on the campus of NJIT.
We'll kick things off as a whole group in a large hall with some food and drinks, followed by very quick overviews of the following topics:
1) Wearable technology (Google Glass, Android Wear, etc.)
2) How entrepreneurs use technology most effectively in their everyday lives
3) The ever-emerging entrepreneurial scene in Newark.
After the initial overviews, we'll break out into 2 tracks, one optimized for entrepreneurs and business people, and another aimed at developers:
Developers + Techies
A handful of members from the Google Development Group will take a dive into Android Studio, and show you some of the nuts and bolts of developing an Android Wear enabled app. We'll be building an app or two prior to the event, and we'll show you how the different features are enabled and controlled through live code demos. We'll also be giving out great Google schwag through some sort of merit-based method yet to be determined.
Entrepreneurs & Other Business Folk
Anthony Frasier of Brick City Tech (and many other ventures) and I (Lean Startup Machine and Tech Launch mentor) will be showing you some of our favorite time-saving, efficiency-increasing, blood-pressure-lowering tech tips and tricks that everyone should be using in their personal and professional lives. We'll also figure out a way to give away some great Google gear.
There are a few other surprises planned as well. It should be a fun event, and we hope you come join us and keep the community moving forward!
