These are not your typical software engineering events.  BASE is focused on emerging technologies and creating events around topics that have never been attempted.  Events may be around such topics as Big Data, Machine Learning, Robotics, Nanotechnology, 3D Printing, Synthetic Biology, Artificial Intelligence, Computer History, Computer Vision, Augmented Reality (AR), and using software to create art.

BASE creates events only possible in San Francisco and the Bay area with experts from all walks of life as possible speakers in panels and even debates between different languages, IDE's, technologies, techniques, marketing strategies and more.  We always try and have a speaker that speaks from a startup perspective.

Events may also touch on application development, software engineering, OO, cloud, mobile, enterprise, business intelligence, HTML5, Hadoop, Python, Eclipse, JavaScript, JAVA, HBASE, MapReduce, Erlang, jQuery, MongoDB, NoSQL, PHP, Agile, Ruby on Rails (RoR), Frameworks, IDEs, animation, design, node.js, twisted, Android, iPhone, iOS, UI/UX, social media, SEO/SEM/PPC, and how to turn applications and ideas into real business solutions and revenue.

BASE offers unbelievable social networking opportunities with people from all backgrounds and philosophies.  We encourage everyone to join who has a love for new technologies, software engineering, and the opportunity to network with working professionals.  We are embracing the future and welcome you to join us.
