    I'm a first timer with NJ Tech, second Meetup overall and commuted to Hoboken from Red Bank. The experience was fascinating from the moderator to the presenters to, obviously, the speaker. The only thing that could keep me away, from now on, is NJ Turnpike traffic. Thanks to presenters and organizers.

    Probably the best meetup I habe ever been too. Great startup and Jeff was inspiring and at the same time provided great tools to use in the future so it was very helpful.

    A 10 Rating on a scale of 1-5! Standing room only so I stood for 2 hours, do I get an $8 credit? :) Aaron Price is simply an outstanding leader that does not feed off of the NJTechMeetup ecosystem...Get it? His monthly meetups are the best in NYCMetro with full agenda, content and entertainment! Jeff Hoffman was AWESOME, PASSIONATE, INSPIRING and VERY INSIGHTFUL/INSTRUCTIVE! A very neat person/experience. Nice to meet his partner David Gardner too.

    Agree that the meetup was excellent! Perhaps those who have "help" requests can list their comments here? Inkwhy.com is looking for bloggers and/or people who have sold "stuff" online to give feedback on our concept, as well as node.js programmers, and experienced/Internet industry professionals who would be willing to serve on our board or help us in an advisory capacity.

    Hey Everyone, I just wanted to say it was a pleasure attending my first NJ Tech Meetup and I met so many great minded, young entrepreneurs it was truly inspiring (plus Jeff's speech helped too). Please dont hesitate to reach out on LinkedIn and connect with me. I have a lot of contacts in many industries given my current role and would be happy to make intro's or offer insight if you need help with anything. Look forward to seeing you all at the next event and hopefully around Hoboken!!!

    Great event. First time at one of these, and I'll definitely be back for more

    June 22, 2012

  • Frank C.

    A good night. My first event. Learned a lot. The main speaker (Priceline) didn't provide too much value for me. Mostly anecdotal stories of his achievements. Less about the nuts and bolts of the start-up process. I understand that it wasn't the focus.

    June 22, 2012

  • Aaron P.

    Startups rocked. Jeff was ridiculously awesome. I get so pumped up by these events. Thanks everybody!

    Jeff was one of the most interesting and thought provoking speakers I've heard yet. Definitely want to incorporate his "info sponge" into my schedule. The startup presentations were all very interesting too. Thanks to all for organizing and presenting.

  • Dominik R.

    Glad to see something other than either a mobile app or an eCommerce service for a change as one of the startup pitches. It's not all about computer geeks anyway, technology spans beyond that. Thanks for bringing in those girls to talk about their innovative healthcare device.

  • Chris B.

    My first Meetup so I didn't know what to expect, But Jeff Hoffman and the presenters hit it out of the park!! Jeff was very interesting, he went over allot of stuff, great speaker. And I was most surprised at the startup presenters... great ideas, great pitches, and the students had a great idea! I've had 3 spine surgeries so their invention peaked my interest. Only my first but I don't know why I woud give less than 5 stars.

    I'm constantly amazed at what great speakers Aaron gets for these events. The start-ups and the main speaker are always fantastic. Last night was no exception. I always learn something when I attend.

  • Mark L.

    The speed networking prior to the main event was a smart touch and established a relaxed business atmosphere. The four startup presentations continued the theme of collaborative business growth. Hoffman was an outstanding speaker with great ideas.

    Hello Everyone, I currently work for Adobe and am building a mobile app with a friend from Oracle that we see as "game changing". I have been rounding up angels who are extremely excited about our upcoming launch and I am looking for an exceptional programmer and a designer who can handle the web aspects to join us. I'd like to build a small team here locally in Hoboken as I found face to face is truly the best method for collaboration. If you are interested, pleas find me - Jeff Frommer

    June 21, 2012

  • Susan N.

    Chris, I'm a designer so maybe can help out... see you later. Susan

  • Chris B.

    I'm hoping to meet some people interested collaborating on client proofing and video editing SaaS. Need programers and designers. My first meet-up, so I have no idea what to expect. LOL
