Cheers CSS Designers!
Just wanted to let you know that Startup Weekend NYC (http://nyc.startupweekend.org
) is coming up next week, and members of NY CSS Meetup receive a $10 discount off the registration fee.
The majority of the attendees are developers and designers. Last year there have been only two or three designers using CSS in the crowd. So we've been offered a discount code "nycss" in hopes to bring more of us out.
Those of you interested, be sure to snag the discount price fast. The event has just recently sold out, but a member on the planning team for the event has extended/re-opened the event by another 20 to allow the NY CSS Meetup members to sign up. If interested, be sure to snag it quick and represent.
A quick summary of the event:
The event is basically a weekend hack session to build and launch startups. On Friday night individuals pitch ideas for new ventures, teams form around the best ideas and then work over the weekend to develop and launch a prototype on Sunday. We bring out a panel of established entrepreneurs and angel investors to preview teams' final presentations on Sunday. This year AOL Ventures has committed to funding the best concept that comes out of the weekend. We're also a part of InternetWeek this year.
And it's official! The CTO of Meetup.com will be speaking on Friday night!
It would be cool to see some NY CSS Meetup members come out, pitch some ideas, and launch a few web/mobile apps.
Hope you find it helpful.
