Wednesday, May 22, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM (CEST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
As many of you know or just learned, we have been working on starting a new company. We have been working hard on typical company infrastructure, like a name, a website and our proposition. We thought it would be fun to hold a tech meetup that will double as our launch event (before we start blasting the world with our marketing and sales effort). So no marketing speak here, just two tech talks and a quick introduction of our new venture. Also, we aim to make this a recurring event set to take place once every six to eight weeks, with two tech talks every time.
