We are creators of products and our medium is software (and sometimes hardware). We are designers and developers, facilitators and managers, students and teachers. We know building a product is different than writing code or generating designs.

Tinderbox is the intersection of product, design, and technology. Our goal is to create a place where folks who are interested in building things people use can discuss, share, meet, create, and exchange useful feedback.

Carbon Five is the sponsor of Tinderbox and is responsible for its care and well-being. However, Tinderbox is here for anyone one who wants to participate. As events are scheduled we will look to you and others to share experiences and why those experiences were illuminating or inspiring.

If you plan on attending one of our events, please familiarize yourself with our Event Code of Conduct.

A note to developers and designers - we're always looking for great new folks to join our team.  If you like our vibe and think Carbon Five might be the right place for you, let us know.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
