Intel Ultracode Hits The ‘Suites

 

Join us for the first Intel code&tell meetup at Sandbox Suites South Park! Come with your programming appetite and bring your hacks. We’ll have a few short code demonstrations, raffle and of course pizza and beer; if you are up to plug your computer and give a technical demo to the rest of the group let us know – we have a few more spots left.

*Update – we’ve filled all demo spots for our December meetup, however we’re already planning our January event so there’ll be more opportunities to present.
