What we're about

How are technology, entrepreneurship and innovation making Philadelphia better?

The Technical.ly Philly Meetup hosts a range of events that explore how the local tech community is impacting job growth/retention, digital access/education and government/policy reform in Philadelphia.

The events will range from pre-hackathon receptions, civic app demos, digital access discussions and cross-city, cross-community and other partnered meetups.

PTW19 Kickoff Festival


This year’s kickoff aims to blend the best of Philly Tech Week 2019 with a 27-year-old tradition of arts and culture in Philadelphia known as First Friday where galleries traditionally open their doors and the sidewalks fill with people looking to see the newest collections. Meet technologists, artists and entrepreneurs alike through this neighborhood-wide, one-night activation. MAJOR KEY ALERT: Our pals in the cloud, Linode, will open up their gorgeous space at 3rd and Arch streets to be the official host for the Philly Tech Week 2019 presented by Comcast Kickoff Festival in Old City! Looking for art to hang in your office or home, and support the local creative community at the same time? Join our “Buy local art” challenge and help us reach the goal of $10,000 of local art purchased by the tech community during Philly Tech Week 2019 presented by Comcast. We are creating a beautiful map of the PTW19 Kickoff Festival footprint featuring the companies and organizations that wish to be open and a part of the event by being represented on the map as a location open for some period of time to the public between 5 to 10 p.m. that first Friday night in May.

Workshop: Learn React by building a quiz game with Ken Rimple, Director of Training and Mentoring Services, Chariot Solutions Description: From 9:00am to 12:00pm, Chariot's Ken Rimple has a fun workshop in store for you. He'll bring an Express/GraphQL server Quizzo-style application, and you'll create a front-end for it in React. Along the way you'll learn how React components work, how you can build components functionally with hooks, interface with GraphQL and issue GQL queries, subscribe to game play messages, and answer questions to play the game. You'll develop the application as part of a Yarn monorepo. At the end, if all goes well, everyone can point their clients to Ken's server and play the game together. Prerequisites: This session is geared to the absolute React beginner. We'll assume you have a bit of JavaScript under your belt, and are a seasoned .NET or Java programmer besides. All you need to do is install the Long-Term support version of Node.Js and have joined conference WIFI and you're all set. We'll take it from there together.
