After a long summer hiatus (Mark has been traveling) we're bring back the meetup on August 28th at our old stomping grounds of 1871.
We'll have Arnav speak to us about Cubii (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1869110231/cubii-under-desk-elliptical-trainer), a Chicago QS company that used kickstarted to gross nearly 4x their desired goal (as well as get featured all over the Chicago tech scene). We'll then have two accelerometer stories - Chris with his experience bringing an accelerometer with him to Six Flags, and Lyu who placed an accelerometer on his boxing gloves.
UPDATE! Lyu cannot make it so we'll have a replacement third speaker. Sorry guys!!!
All three have been members for a long time, and Chris and Lyu are actually repeat speakers so my own expectations are quite high.
We'll be in the IMSA room at 1871, which is inside the Merchandise Mart. When you enter, tell the security guard in the lobby that you are going to the 12th floor. When exiting the elevator, walk toward the bright 1871 sign. Once inside 1871, take a right at the first hallway and you'll see a sign for our meetup. Call Eugene's cell at[masked] if you have any troubles.
Finally, I'd like to take a moment to introduce Brian Martinek to our organizing team. You can send him all of your comments, questions, compliments, and complaints. But seriously, he's had some excellent ideas about what we can do in the future, so keep your ears open.
See everyone on the 28th!
