Join Rock the Post for My Project Live in NYC
Rock The Post will host My Weekend Project Live, a free educational networking event at the Wix Lounge on January 9th, 2012 at 7PM EDT. This event will feature a selected group of lone wolf project developers presenting their Weekend Projects before a panel of top industry VCs.
My Weekend Project Live is a group for anybody interested in the amazing projects that ambitious web and mobile developers are building as personal side projects. These developers almost always have real jobs working at an established company, but hack on crazy ideas on the weekend. New York City is one of the top engineering hotspots in the United States. With all of this engineering talent, our Meetup exists to give a platform to this ambitious group of creative developers and engineers allowing them to showcase their works to their industry peers, investors, and the blogosphere.
The aim of this event is to highlight the projects of talented engineers, creating projects in their spare time. Please note: These projects should not be your main daily focus. We are trying to showcase engineers that typically have an established job, and create these projects in their spare time.
We will be accepting submissions from engineers to present at My Weekend Project Live, and will pick the most promising selections to present before our panel of VCs. The judges and audience members will have a chance to vote on their favorite project, and the remainder of the evening will be dedicated to networking with key industry members. For submissions, please email leora[at]rockthepost[dot]com.
This event will be lead by My Weekend Project Live creator, Jonathan Block and is being sponsored by Alejandro Cremades and Tanya Prive, Founders of Rock The Post, the leading crowdfunding platform for funding entrepreneurs and innovation.
