We want to open dialogue between all members of the tech community - corporate & indie, young & old, geek & nerd - to help figure out how we build a community that will survive & thrive during this economic downturn.
Based on a recent poll, we learned that 82% of tech folks in the area believe that it is important for us to explore new ways of coming together and learning from each other to survive & thrive in this time of economic uncertainty.
Additionally, 62% of the 225 respondents said that they would be interested in participating in a networking event to discuss how we can do this.
