I'm interested in stereo imaging and do 3D photography as a hobby. I am a former product manager and engineer and led product development projects at Raytek (Fluke) for a number of years. My interests these days are to see Santa Cruz develop into a center for sustainability and innovation.
I would like to see local companies that develop in Santa Cruz, stay in Santa Cruz. We need to develop a new community culture that will attract and retain talented people and encourage businesses that innovate and foster entrepreneurial spirit. These sorts of events are part of the solution.
I have heard a lot about past meetings and wish that I had been there for the presentations.
The Tech Meetup provides a good opportunity to connect with business and technical people that you might not otherwise cross paths with during the course of the month. The local group is growing and is becoming much more of a community.
