Thanks to everyone who attended the June meetup, and for those of you who couldn't make it, here's what you missed:
- MiniBar Takeaways
BarCampNOLA is back for a 6th year, guarantees to be better than ever (or attendees get their money back -- oh wait, it's free!)
This year's theme, as eloquently and creatively presented by John Clarke of Hop and Jaunt, is brought to life by the event's mascot Bearett by Bear. Registration is open, and details on the weekend's festivities can be found at http://barcampnola.com/.
- MakerFaire in the Making!
Tim Soslow announced that folks from both TurboSquid and Bricolage are in the early stages of planning a MakerFaire in New Orleans (click to learn more about these events). They have a tentative date for Spring 2014, and are looking for those in the maker community that might be interested in being involved. To get involved or to learn more, email the group at [address removed]
- Google Glass Demo
On Tuesday, June 23rd, Allyson Seitzler, part-time New Orleanian and SEO extraordinaire / owner of WebTyde Internet Marketing, will be in New Orleans showing off a pair (of Google Glasses...that is).
