We will meet at the SquareSpace office at 6:30pm. SquareSpace will provide drinks.

Then, we will walk a few blocks up Broadway and ZocDoc will provide dinner for us at their offices.

We will meet with the developers at both offices. They will tell us about the technology they are building, give us an overview of their development stack and share information on their team structure and culture. We will get an inside view of their offices and enjoy drinks, dinner and conversations.
