Event Ended

Some have expressed confusion as to scheduling of our events. And we probably haven't done a great job of getting the message out in a consistent manner. Well, the SW organizers and other community leaders recently met, had some good discussions, and we've come up with a game plan.

Below you'll see the rough outline of our yearly schedule.

For those that are new, Startup Weekend is a 52-hour event that's part meetup, part education, part hackathon, and ALL awesome!

Come on Friday to mingle, then get ready to pitch your great idea to the crowd. Teams form around the most popular ideas which then work through the weekend to build something to present to judges on Sunday.
