Hi All,

There are four upcoming tech events that need some community support to get off the ground.  If any of these are appealing to you, please get in touch with the organizer directly.

Startup Grind
The team from Startup Grind just completed a successful run in the Valley (http://startupgrind.com/­) and are looking to replicate the magic in Vancouver.  They had some heavy hitting speakers in SFO including: Clayton Christensen and Steve Blank.  If you are interested in joining this project fire Cheryl an email at: me@cherylm.ca


Startup Weekend Vancouver
The next edition of Startup Weekend is coming up in May and the Lead Organizer, Yaniv Talmor will need hands on deck to make it awesome. This is a great opportunity to tap into the investment and established startup side of the community by working with and reaching out to the tech community.  More info on Startup Weekend: http://startupweekend...­ If you are interested get in touch with Yaniv at: yanivt@gmail.com

(Also rumours that there is another Startup Weekend happening at the end of March... details when they come in)

LadyCoders

The crew from http://ladycoders.com/­ is looking to come up from the States to do an event here in Vancouver.  In their words, LadyCoders "In these seminars, we give attendees the tools they need to find, get into, and be happy in tech careers." If you are interested in helping out with this, please get in touch with Kelly at: kellymiller@hotmail.com­

Sports Hack Day

I just got back from Sports Hack Day (http://sportshackday.com/­) Seattle during the Superbowl and had an amazing time hacking on APIs from ESPN and others building sports related apps and visualizations.  Would love to bring the event up to Vancouver in May or June, probably around the hockey playoffs.  If you are interested in helping out email: jesse@id8.ca

Talk soon

Jesse


ps.  The folks at the Vancouver Hack Space (http://hackspace.ca)­ are putting on an Arduino and Pi workshop Thursday Feb 21st at 7:30pm (because there isn't enough already going on that night!).  If you are interested in checking out some hardware hacks, you should check this out: https://vancouver.hackspace.ca/wp/2013/02/04/raspberry-pi-python-webide-gpio-pins-blink-sketch-tuesday-feb-5th/­
