eCoast Tech Crawl
Thursday, March 14, 2013 from 4:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
eCoast Tech Crawl fuses Portsmouth’s nightlife with a cutting-edge tech crowd
Join eCoast for a dynamic pub crawl through downtown Portsmouth for seacoast technology professionals and enthusiasts. This collaboration-oriented event, which takes place on March 14, 2013 from 4:30 – 8:30 p.m., features three components, three relevant technology topics, and three different venues.
The inaugural eCoast Tech Crawl is built around the software release life cycle: Alpha, Beta, and Release. The Crawl kicks off in “Alpha” appropriately enough at Congress Street’s Alpha Loft, a coworking space for tech/creative/startup professionals. In Alpha, crawl-goers will check out one of the seacoast’s successful coworking models and hear about the state of the local technology scene from Josh Cyr, founder of Alpha Loft and freelance software developer.
The Crawl’s second stage, “Beta”, takes place at The Thirsty Moose and features three twenty-minute topic-driven talks on trending technologies, including the transformation to designing in the browser and database technologies to efficiently manage big data. The Crawl culminates in the final stage, “Release”, at the Press Room where eCoast will release a special announcement and crawl-goers can enjoy post-event camaraderie.
Food and refreshments are included along the Crawl. In addition, there will also be attendee giveaways and prizes. Space is limited and interested attendees are urged to sign up quickly.
