What we're about

The goal of Providence Geeks is to help Rhode Island’s digital innovators connect, collaborate, and ultimately make the City-State and its geeks info-technology leaders.

If you're passionate about tech or are even just interested in technology, you're welcome to join us at this monthly meetup.

Topics of conversation will vary as they will at any gathering of geeks, but many of us will be talking about start-ups, new devices, innovative business models, 3d printing, interaction design, social computing, digital art, web services, and more! There is Wi-Fi so bring your connected device of choice.

It’s totally casual. Wear whatever, bring whomever, arrive and take off whenever! And don’t worry about eating or not – come famished or full – eating is optional, and frankly, the least of the festivities (that’s not to say the food isn’t good – it’s actually great).

PVD Geeks Returns with Family Fun in Innovation District Park

Needs a location

After a too-long hiatus, it's time that we return with another family-friendly version of Providence Geeks. We'll be featuring hands-on activities powered by NESmaker, the Rhode Island Computer Museum, and BlocksCAD.

Joe Granato, Director of the team behind NESmaker, has recently moved to the area and is looking to meet the Providence Geeks. At this month's Providence Geeks, he'll be showing off brand new NES games (blowing in the cartridges optional) and the tools with which they were created. Joe will be giving a presentation with Q+A so you can learn more.

The event itself is FREE! Beverages are for sale at the Guild PVD Beer Garden, and food is available for purchase from nearby establishments such as Dune Bros, Plant City, and if possible, an on-site food truck.
