Hey guys, my name is Jared Brown. I used to come to Indy.rb meetups back in 2006 - 7. I've spoken with Miles about an event I'm hosting Sat, Apr 14th called Indy Hack Day and he thought it'd be good to post a mention on the mailing list. The key selling points in my mind are that it's a chance to find out what others are working on outside of our usual circles. You can bring your own project and have a good portion of a day to work on it. If that's not interesting to you we will have four workshops that you can attend. We'll also have a few unscheduled events (fireside chats, technical demos, etc.). If none of that catches your fancy we will also have a beer and wine mixer that should be great for kicking back and networking. You do not have to stay for the whole day. You are welcome to attend according to your schedule. Lunch and dinner will be provided. Lunch will be pizza from Thr3e Wise Men and dinner will be from Hank's Brisket (BBQ). For the vegetarians we will be ordering Noodles & Co for dinner and have cheese pizza for lunch. We are shooting for around 50 people to attend. Tickets are expected to sell quickly. We already sold 25% of them during an early bird special. They will be priced at $35. You can sign up to buy a ticket at http://indyhackday.com
Tickets are not available for the general public at the moment. But I am focused on getting high-quality people into the event. So if you or anyone you know is interested let me know and I will make sure you or they get a ticket.
