An upcoming event for Pittsburgh software and web developers, designers, and creative types of all sorts, plus entrepreneurs and more:
DevHouse Pittsburgh is back for 2008! Our second event will be held on Saturday, January 26th at the Creative TreeHouse in Bellevue. In true DevHouse style, we’ll be going all day and into the night, from noon until midnight! Bring your laptop, and feel free to show up for just an hour or stay for the entire time. Snacks and beverages will be provided for your hacking pleasure. For those of you new to DevHouse, this event is intended to provide a place to work on personal software projects, meet other people passionate about technology, and learn new things.
From 4PM to 6PM DevHouse Pittsburgh attendees who want to work on a volunteer project can assist local charities by developing a web-based application to facilitate mentoring programs. The beneficiaries of this endeavor are the Boys and Girls Club of Western Pennsylvania and the Rivers Club’s Young Executives Committee mentoring program for talented students in the Pittsburgh public schools. Share your tips and ideas on what makes sense, help the community, learn from your peers, and meet more of your colleagues.
At 3PM and 7:30PM, a series of lightning talks will be given for approximately an hour. If you’d like to give a lightning talk in either of these time slots, please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the interest of lively discussion, the lightning talks will be be strictly limited to 5 minutes.
