    August 6

  • Jorge V.

    Hola Chicos, el tweet que acabo de ver es cierto? se cancelo el SW?

    August 5

    • Amalia G.

      Pues sí... se demoraron en avisar!

      2 · August 5

    • Janse L.

      1 · August 5

  • Amalia G.

    Jejeje, hay cierto relajo con la sede :P

    2 · July 22

  • Amalia G.

    Qué significa estar en la lista "waiting"? desde ayer el número de participantes ha aumentado pero la algunas personas salen como inscritos en el evento y otros "waiting" -_-

    2 · July 30

  • Jorge R.

    Recordatorio:

    Hay algunos sin ponerse nombre completo... lean las FAQ por si las dudas.

    Otra cosa: es muy aconsejable que en la descripción incluyan qué habilidades aportan, si tienen algún proyecto ya realizado o en camino, si tienen github, twitter, blog, lo que se les ocurra que pueda servir para que otros les vayan echando el ojo para su equipo ;)

    A todos los que me han escrito, llamado, mandado telegramas, etc (y para evitarle lo mismo a otros): Los RSVPs se abrieron automáticamente y antes de tiempo, cuando fui a arreglarlo salvé la forma sin esperar que la página cargara completamente. Meetup.com, que es de oro, decidió remplazar el campo de la sede por vacío, y como cuando está vacío usan "Joe's Pizzeria" de ejemplo... Vaya, que el día que terminemos Queueno.com la vida va a ser más fácil y bonita 😉

    1 · July 22

    • Carlos Manuel García V.

      Socio, te tengo una sugerencia con Queueno, el certificado que usan está inválido, deberían revisar Let´s Encrypt, abrazos

      2 · July 22

    • Jorge R.

      Después del dia 12 alguien se ocupa ;)

      1 · July 25

  • Arturo Alejandro Bas M.

    Hola,cual es la dirección de Joe's Pizzeria ?

    3 · July 22

  • Jorge R.

    Hola, para democratizar el acceso (que sabemos no todos tienen Meetup todo el tiempo), avisaremos con antelación de cambios, adiciones, aplazas disponibles, etc en nuestras páginas de Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/startupweekendhavana/ y https://www.facebook.com/merchisestartups/
    Más detalles allá, bien pronto...
