TIME: 07:30 pm - 09:30 pm
On Wednesday, March 29 General Assembly and Harpoon will join forces to bring the power of code to the Boston community for one high impact, interactive evening at Harpoon Brewery.
Through a series of lightning talks with leaders of Boston’s innovation community and a short, hands-on coding crash course - you’ll discover all the creative and entrepreneurial things that can be done with code. Explore how local tech companies are using code to improve urban experience, make us more healthy and fit, and help us organize our busy lives - all over a few delicious Harpoon beers and pretzels. (Pretzels are on the house!)
Whether you are brand new to tech, starting to dip your toes into code, or just curious about the intersection of tech and our daily lives, Code in the Brewery will inspire you to jumpstart your journey and never stop learning.
Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Capacity is limited so admission will be first come, first served. Bring your ID, a charged laptop and an open mind.
