MIXTURE

Come connect with LBTECH!  Mingle with those who are shaping the tech industry in Long Beach. The hours of the meetup are 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm at Harvelle's, which is in the basement next to Congregation Ale House.  This time we're doing something new, and potentially hilarious:  BATTLE DECKS!

What is it?

We've all hit that moment in a public talk or presentation when everything goes wrong, and sometimes its up to your pure wit to make it through the situation.

Battledecks; everything about your presentation is wrong, and preferrably you've had a couple of drinks.

Don't worry, you're among friends, and this is going to be a hilarious opportunity for you to practice pulling a *rabbit out of a hat!  Come have fun, get better and have a laugh.

*a rabbit might also come out of an animated hat in one of your slides, be prepared."

We'll laugh at bad PPTs and cheer-on our ability to slay it.

Meet new Long Beach Tech Director, John Grefe, as he  grabs the first pitch of the night.  Got what it takes?  Sure you do!   Jump into this fun event of bad-deck improv.  When you RSVP let us know you're in the game.

    Great meetup ... excited about the people and what's happening in Long Beach!

    However, I have to be honest, I was really confused after talking with Kevin Crawford for about 5minutes, then introduced to Kevin Crawford. Will the real Kevin Crawford please stand up?

    SO funny! Kin Jong Jasmine was a riot. Andrew brought it all home managing to magically control Darth Vadar's "Twin Ion Engine Fighter" animation with a mere gesture. I learned milk doesn't come from poultry and Bacon Is Awesome! Everybody did such an amazing job pitching! Thanks for showing up in SUCH A BIG WAY.

    Hey everyone! If you didn't already hear, we will be mixing things up a bit this Wednesday for MIXTURE at Harvelle's. We will be announcing the plans for the next "Hack Night" which will benefit a downtown Long Beach non-profit that... Well, I don't want to spoil the surprise, but I'm absolutely sure you'll be excited to rally your skills around their cause! Also, we are going to play "Battle Decks" which will be a ton of fun. The description is above. See you then! DW

    I've missed the last couple mixture meetups, but I'm looking forward to meeting others in the Long Beach Tech community. At hack night, I helped put long beach tech on the map: http://map.longbeachtech.org
