Join us volunteers at NWATechFest in the brewery room at GOAT LAB Brewery in Lowell, AR on March 29, 2023 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm for free snacks, free drinks, and the chance to chat with other STEM professionals in Northwest Arkansas.

Presentation this month:
Josh Hanna on "Scaling a dev team"


This recurring volunteer-organized event was created to give NWA STEM professionals the opportunity to meet, learn, and grow with one another to create a more connected community.

While most of this social event is freeform dialog amongst attendees, there are two times where we will ask for your attention:

From approximately 6:15pm to 6:45pm, there will be a presentation by Josh Hanna on "Scaling a dev team". It will be a multimedia display projected onto a wall of the brewery. We are currently investigating creating streaming or video-on-demand versions of our speaker content, but will not have it available for this Meetup.

From approximately 7:00pm to 7:15pm, event organizers will be focus attendees on a group Q&A session on various topics. Topics could include attendee preferences for future events, notices other social/STEM groups in the area, and anything else that seems interesting. Attendees be invited to ask questions to the group as well.

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 your drinks paid for. Organizers are happy to procure some pizzas for the group, but individual/specialty meals should be handled 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).

- Feel free to come if you are recruiter, but try to keep any hard pitching to the Q&A segment (and only if the audience is receptive). Don't be surprised if someone asks about salary ranges and benefits.
- 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.
