Social SWRE - Oakland

Let's meet up in the Jack London Square area in Oakland to have a social SWRE soiree.

Some people are trying to push Oakland and the Jack London Square area to become a hub for software companies in both renewable energy specifically and green-tech more broadly... so it's a great place for us to all meet!

We won't have a speaker or do a snazzy presentation... but we'll have plenty of time to just chat and eat and drink. For the time being, plan to bring some $ to cover your own food and drinks.

Sorry for the late notice, we could bump it back a week if needed. Alternatively, if Friday doesn't seem like a good evening, we could also do Thursday or Saturday as far as I'm concerned. Leave comments if you'd much prefer an alternative date. Fortunately, this venue seems pretty flexible... they just asked me to call them a few hours before we arrive so they can plan accordingly.

If you or your company is hiring, it would be great if you'd prep an overview of your needs. At some point during the event I'll pull the whole group together and organize a time for you to share your needs.

And in the other direction, if you're looking for (more) work... you will also be able to share some info about yourself to see if anyone bites.

SWRE away,

    I look forward to my first SWRE meetup. Thanks for bringing to the 510.

      Yeah, I'm excited to bring SWRE to Oakland for the first time, as well! Especially since, as I mentioned above, there is a bit of an effort afoot to make Oakland a very SWRE friendly city. And I can cite that desire back to some remarks I heard from Jean Quan last summer. She came to the opening ceremonies of a Solar Hackathon at Sungevity and shared her desire to attract more and more software professionals and companies who have an interest in RE.

    I can also personally recommend this bar. Easy access to Amtrack (1 block). Great beers and very cool ambiance.

    Oh and here's a link to the bar's Yelp page... for those of us who care about ratings and collective intelligence:
