Upcoming Tech Events For April

I’m sharing my upcoming events for the month of April 2012 and beyond.

Coming back from SXSW has me feeling inspired!  I’ve been working on a few projects that had me traveling which has been fun.  Now that I’m up and running with SendGrid, watch for blog posts like this one outlining upcoming events.  Reach out and connect!

April 12th, 2012, San Francisco, CA: Meetup – San Francisco Bay Area Azure Developers: Node.js – How to easily build fast, scalable network applications.  Register

April 13th – 15th, 2012, Mountain View, CA: Mega Startup Weekend is happening again!  This is one of the largest events held by Startup Weekend and brings together three tracks: Mobile, Gaming and Robots.  Attendees will come together on Friday night to form into groups and have 54 hours to build a minimally viable product (MVP) to present on Sunday.  Teams will consist of developers, designers, business and product development.  If you have an idea or can help build, you need to attend!  This will be my third Startup Weekend event and I’ve had an amazing time every time I’ve gone.  Elmer Thomas and I will be there from SendGrid since we’re global sponsors.  Register

April 14th, 2012, San Francisco, CA: Girl Develop IT SF More technology training goodness comes to the bay area!  You may recognize the name Girl Develop IT because they’ve received extensive coverage in NYC on their delivery of over 70 technical workshops to women who want to become developers.  Subjects are all related to web and app development like HTML/CSS, Javascript/JQuery, PHP/MySQL, Android Development with Java, Object-Oriented Programming and Ruby on Rails.  Founded by Sarah Chipps, Girl Develop It now has seven chapters.  The first San Francisco workshop focusing on HTML/CSS will being taught by Pamela Fox, developer and Ex-Googler.  SendGrid is sponsoring this event and I will be attending and participating.  Register

April 20th, 2012, Atlanta, GA: MongoDB Atlanta All applications are not built with the same technology.  Well, maybe at one time they were but the world of tech now has infinite opportunities to not only build something new but build that idea with something new.  Such is the case of MongoDB, a popular noSQL database alternative.  Companies like Foursquare, Craigslist, Disney and The New York Times prefer MongoDB for the flexibility and support for big data sets.  While SendGrid doesn’t utilize MongoDB, we are exploring Cassanda.  I’ll be attending this conference. Twitter Hashtag #mongodbatlanta.  Register

April 20th – 22nd, 2012, Atlanta, GA: Startup Weekend Atlanta With hundreds of these intense and productive 54 hour events being held all over the world, it’s not a surprise that one of the up and coming technology hubs in the United States is back for another Startup Weekend.  With the last SW being held in 2010, locals in Atlanta are ready for another event.  Sendgrid is a global sponsor of Startup Weekend and I will be attending and participating.  Register

April 23rd – 25th, 2012 Monterey, CA: MLOVE Conference Have you ever wondered what the future of mobile holds when it comes to business, education, healthcare, media and even world peace?  Well, organizers, speakers and attendees of this conference put a lot of thought and action into that very question!  Held for the first three years in Berlin, Germany, the conference makes it’s onto US soil for the first time.  I will be attending this event.  Register
