About this event

Come out for Meetup Mashup Night! We'll be hosting a series of "lightning talks" on a variety of technical and design related topics from professionals working in the Charlotte area. We'll be joining with several other Meetup community members from a variety of groups here in Charlotte to learn about the larger technology community, and gain some knowledge outside of our regular format. Pizza and drinks will be provided as usual, but we'll get started just a bit earlier to accommodate all of the speakers. Specific speakers and topics will be announced as we get closer to time, but there definitely will be something for everyone. Here's what we have so-far:
