Tech Events this Week - 4/30

Each week for my students, I create a newsletter that lists the tech events going on in DC that I've heard about. I thought it would be really cool to expand that to a bigger community and crowdsource it for other people to contribute.

I am going to put some comments below with different areas, feel free to reply with your events on those comments. If you have an event that isn't in one of those areas, feel free to first write a comment with the area, then another one threaded onto it with your event!

This week, I posted on a Monday, but in the future, I will be posting on Fridays so that people have time to put things on their calendars!

Discussion (22)

Sometimes I do wish I lived in a major city in the US. Development seems a lot more community based over there!

I live in New York City, the most romanticized city in the world, but after work I mostly go home and watch 20-year-old Simpsons episodes.
