    I'm proud to present the last Sharatoga TechTalks meetup of the Spring, to be held on Wednesday, May 17 at Harvey's Pub in Saratoga Springs, NY with networking starting around 5:30 PM and the first presenter kicking off at 6 PM promptly. We have a busy calendar of upcoming events in April I want to share with everyone: Presenters: Aaron Brown - Kubernetes Overit - Demoing their project from HackUpstate Dumbstruck - Demo of their video testing and optimization platform. Eric Rozell - Presenting on React.js Wishlist for future presenters: 1) Ionic or PhoneGap app developer - I'm really interested in both of these services to take a mobile website, wrap it with their software, and spit it native apps for iOS & Android. Would love to someone to do a demo of how this works. 2) Sports analytics and monitoring software - I'm being 100% selfish on this one, but this is one of my passions right now. Do you have a side-project you'd like to share? Holah at us! Do you have a community announcements you'd like to share you'd like to share? Holah at us! (see a theme here!?!?) Thanks.

    So full disclosure: I messed up and had to bail on doing an April Sharatoga TechTalks meetup. Turns out I can only be in one place at a time, and a sacrifice had to be made. Bottom line is I failed you, but the good news we've got a FULL program scheduled for our May Sharatoga TechTalks so try to get there early because we're starting promptly at 5:30 PM. We have (3) great presenters & (2-4) great side-projects by local hackers/developers/designers that were created at the April HackUpstate event. Come on out and support your local tech scene over at Harvey's Pub in Saratoga Springs, NY on Wednesday, May 18 start at 5:30 PM until 7 PM-ish. Presenters: Chris Bick - "loT Crowdsourcing Network" Daniel Chessare - "Gamification" Yuliya Peshkova - "From Photography to Project Management" Joe Arcuri - Hackathon Project Mubashar Iqbal/Seth Louey - Hackathon Projects (we'll limit them to only 2-3) Thanks.
