The weather is warm, the beverages are cold, and the outdoor seating is shady!
Third Thursdays, HV Tech's monthly social event in Poughkeepsie. Come for the interesting people and great tech conversations. There are no speakers and no agenda — just a bunch of people who love tech and the Hudson Valley getting together to hang out. All are welcome, whether you're an industry veteran or just mildly curious about tech! 👩💻👩🎤👨🚀🤖👩🔬
**Where is it?**
We'll be meeting at King's Court Brewing in downtown Poughkeepsie. They have a fantastic selection of craft house beers, as well as nonalcoholic drinks. The bar serves snacks and is also fine with us bringing or ordering food (we usually order some pizza). Even better, they have outdoor seating and Giant Jenga.
**What should I expect?**
We usually have a smallish group of people from a variety of disciplines and interests — designers and programmers, students and business folks. Some people have been in tech for decades, and others aren't in tech but are interested in learning more.
The first people tend to arrive around 6, but others filter in and out for a couple of hours. We usually hang out in the outdoor seating area with drinks (both non-alcoholic and alcoholic), and order some pizza.
Conversation tends to be casual, and everyone's friendly. We aim to be welcoming to people of every background, skill level, and tech interest!
**What will I get out of it?**
You'll meet people working in tech from throughout Dutchess County and beyond! We're part of the larger Hudson Valley Tech Meetup, so you'll likely run into people from the larger local tech events, too.
There are often people looking to hire, or looking for work, too. So if you're searching for a job or an employee, you may be in luck!
