What we're about

High quality, free technology and entertainment workshops and competitions by AT&T

AT&T only holds a few technology and entertainment-oriented workshops and competitions each year in your area, so you won't get a lot of messages from us. But join this meetup and when we do you'll be the first to know when we’re coming to Los Angeles!

In addition to the quality developer-oriented workshops and hackathons we are already known for we are adding workshops and competitions in filmmaking, 360 video, virtual reality, and other entertainment-oriented subjects.

Also, sign up for the AT&T SHAPE newsletter (https://shape.att.com/newsletter) and be the first to know about all of our upcoming AT&T events.

We look forward to seeing you!
