Come join fellow technology enthusiasts at Launch Academy for our very first Vancouver SMAC (#vansmac) meetup.
At this event you'll be able to connect with like minded individuals who are interested in the Social / Mobile / Analytics / Cloud space, learn about the IBM Global Entrepreneur Program, and receive an overview/demo of BlueMix, an IBM Open Cloud Architecture for building, managing, running apps and services.
Relax, network, and eat and drink in a casual gathering atmosphere. Free pizza and pop will be provided to participants, and we promise we won't try to sell you a timeshare! :)
Agenda for our first meetup (60 minutes or so)
1. Hellos / introduction / goals for this meetup.
2. Overview Presentation - what's it all about.
3. Demo - lets see this thing work.
4. Networking (the social kind, we won't ask you to configure a router).
NOTE: This event is organized by an IBMer and sponsored by IBM. It's the Vancouver edition of SMAC meetups that have been organized in other large cities around the country. However I (Antonio) would like to build a meetup for technology folks in general to get together and discuss / showcase / show and tell innovative technologies in the SMAC space in Vancouver. There will always be interesting IBM content presented, but future events might also feature speakers from local startups or other companies as well. Talk to me (Antonio) at the event if you're interested in these opportunities.
