Refresh Chicago Community Announcements

From: Shay H.
Sent on: Friday, June 7, 2013 11:00 PM


We wanted to take a minute to send out some community announcements, give an update on a few of our summers meetups, and pass along a few upcoming events!

For starters, our June meetup with Jen Myers will be held at at Groupon, not at 1871 as originally scheduled. For those who have already RSVPed please take note of the change. For those yet to RSVP, we'd love to see you!

In July we won't be holding a meetup in Chicago. Instead, Jon and Shay are taking Refresh Chicago on the road, visiting a handful of meetups across the Midwest, including a few other Refresh chapters. You can see their plans at, and please feel free to pass along word to anyone you know who may be interested! They would love the support. In August, we will return to Chicago holding our monthly meetup at TechNexus.

Now for a few upcoming events…

UX Happy Hour
Tuesday, June 11th

UX Happy Hour is all about meeting other designers. It's a self-organized group with hosts in each city, and it's open to anyone who's interested in design. Developers, PMs and founders are all welcome! There aren't any talks or workshops, it's just designers hanging out.

Speaker Camp Chicago
Saturday, June 22nd

Speaker Camp Chicago helps you get prepared for Conference Submission Season™! Spend your Saturday with Speaker Camp Chicago and get prepared to get on stage and show your smarts. They have a full day planned that will give you the fundamentals you need to get up on stage and share your brilliance with the world, and for only $50. To top things off Jared Spool will be coming in to keynote the event. Should you attend let us know how it goes, and if you would like to present at Refresh Chicago sometime!

Peers Conference
June 26-28th

Check out Peers, a tech conference for front-end-designers, PHP devs and web business owners June 26-28. Peers is offering three free code workshops with base ticket price, terrific development and business talks, panel discussions and some great roundtables, along with time for fun and networking. It's all taking place in downtown Chicago at the Cultural Center and early-bird tickets are only $299 - get them while they last!

That about does it! Thank you all for your continued support and for making Refresh Chicago one of the best Refresh chapters around. We hope you have a wonderful summer, and hope to see you soon!

Thank you!

Refresh Chicago
