Techmakers is for business folks with a stake in the IT world — either through their own business or the clients they serve. Each month, a cross-section of Indy’s most influential IT professionals gather to decompress, meet new people, learn something new, and share what they know with others. Cost is $10 for members and guests, and $35 for non members (guests may attend up to two meetings, events, or training sessions).
â€¨Matt Block, Director of Product Management at IASTA, will lead a User Story Writing Workshop. Food and prizes will be provided.
This group’s purpose is to share experiences and help each other along the path of being a software developer by day, and working on a side project or business by night. Many of us are unable to attend “regular” meetups due to conflicting schedules, so this meetup exclusively meets after 9PM.
When: Thursday, December 8, 5:30 PM
Where: 10475 Crosspoint Blvd
