I met a gentleman at Philly Merge who has much the same mission as the conference, to help foster relationships between --as he puts it-- "geeks and suits" in Philly. He's putting on this (and presumably many more) events in the area, and I thought I would pass the word on to you. It sounds like a pretty good deal:
Young Involved Philadelphia SUMMER JAM BBQ (Young Movers & Shakers Event)
WHEN: Sunday July 31st from 2-6
WHERE: Jamaican Jerk Hut, 15th and South
WHY: An amazing line-up of music and local artists exhibiting their work. Food and drinks included! Network (if you want) with the YOUNG movers and shakers of Philadelphia and surrounding areas!
HOW MUCH: All for 15 dollars, 2 for 20 dollars if purchased online in advance. $20 at the door.
**The price covers booze and food!!
Hope to see you all there! Bring friends because it’s going to be a great time!
