NWA TechFest - Social Meetup
Join us outside at Saddlebock Brewery & Restaurant in Springdale, AR on September 28, 2022 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm for free drinks, free apps, and the chance to chat with other STEAM professionals in Northwest Arkansas.
The main purpose of this event is for attendees to meet one another, socialize, and learn more about the STEAM community in NWA. Halfway through the event (around 7:30pm), event organizers will be focusing attendees for a short group Q&A session led by the NWA TechFest organizers. During that brief forum, which usually lasts 15-30 minutes depending on the crowd's interest, attendees will be asked a series of open-ended questions about future event preferences, local tech news and opportunities, and anything else that comes to mind. Attendees will also be invited to ask questions to the group.
If you're a designer or other developer-adjacent role, feel free to attend, but do be prepared for occasional esoteric gibberish from the developer side of the table.
If you want to recruit for some job you can feel free to elevator pitch it if the audience is receptive, but don't be surprised if someone asks about salary ranges and benefits.
NWA TechFest will be providing a limited drink tab for attendees which will operate under a TBD tab name. If you stop by the meetup first, you'll be quickly notified about how to get a free drink. Organizers are happy to procure some foods for the table, but individual meals should be ordered by attendees.
Organizers will try to make themselves known via updates through the messaging feature of the event, but you should at least be able to look for Jonathan Ulrich (who should be listed as attending).
Because this event will be in a public establishment, we have no active COVID policies besides encouraging attendees not to show up if they are sick and to wear a mask at all times if they have active health concerns in regards to the virus.
