Remember that moment about a month and a half ago when you were making your way across the frozen tundra to another Digital DUMBO, thinking "If only I had Tiger Blood, I would be so much warmer." Well, that moment has arrived! Spring weather is here and now we are all suddenly feeling as if we are made of Tiger Blood and ready to be in the company of New York's finest digital thought leaders. And yes, even we are attempting to capitalize on Mr. Sheen! After all, he is hiring a social media intern.
Digital DUMBO, in conjunction with infrastructure provider NYI, is proud to present Spring Forward, an evening whose only agenda is having a good time. There will be themed cocktails and commemorative t-shirts brought to you by Brooklyn- based designer Kayrock Screenprinting.
If NYI sounds familiar, that's because you probably know them for providing colocation, dedicated servers, managed services and other infrastructure support to the likes of Meetup and RollingStone.com. NYI is also the company you see at the top of the charts whenever there's a list of the best hosting and data center providers.
In addition to one-of-a-kind t-shirts, all Digital DUMBO attendees will also be entered into a special raffle for the chance to win cool tech gifts from Digital DUMBO's own Etsy. As always, the sound system will be spinnin' your favorite tracks and there will be a free beer and wine bar!
