Jun5Hacker Lab Lunchtime @ Hamburger pattiesWednesday: 12:00 pm – 1:30 pmregister for this event
Come out and have a coffee or lunch with people from the Hacker Lab community.
To me the best networking is done when real friendships are created.
Having lunch with someone is a great way to make friends and get to know people.
These lunches are smaller only about 4 to 6 people but they are great for conversation time with like minded people.
Come out! Come out!
