Geek Dinner

March 15, 2017 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
AS220 Main Stage
115 Empire St
Providence, RI 02903
At the March 15 Providence Geeks, TechHireRI Director Damian Ewens will join us to talk about their platform, Techhire.Careers, which lets entry-level software developers (more roles coming soon!) demonstrate their skills regardless of how they acquired their training. Damian will update us on this and more progress in implementing a state-wide effort to place 2,000 underrepresented and overlooked Rhode Island jobseekers into in-demand IT jobs by 2020.
The event itself is FREE! Beverages and food are for sale at AS220’s excellent bar and restaurant.
Doors open at 5:30pm. Socializing, eating and drinking up until the 15 min presentation/q&a around 6:30. Afterwards, back to socializing, eating, drinking.
It’s totally casual. Wear whatever, bring whoever, arrive and take off whenever! And don’t worry about eating or not – come famished or full – eating is optional, and frankly, the least of the festivities (that’s not say the food isn’t good – it’s actually great).
Topics of conversation will vary as they will at any gathering of geeks, but many of us will be talking about start-ups, new devices, innovative business models, 3d printing, interaction design, social computing, digital art, web services. There is Wi-Fi so bring your connected device of choice.
