We want to thank the nearly 40 people who braved the nasty weather to join us last week for the inaugural DZone VIP Meetup at our Cary, NC headquarters. We hope you had a great time! We certainly did.
The overwhelming consensus from attendees was that we should organize another event soon, and we told them to count on it. Just take a look at the gallery of photos below and you’ll see that DZone sure knows how to throw a party! (Notice the Disco Ball?)
At the end of the night, everyone was sent home with a little DZone care package filled with our finest swag: Refcardz, stickers, magnets, and our custom-made DZone Meetup T-shirts.
Like we said in the initial meetup announcement, there was no presentation or topic focus for the meeing. Just a great group of tech professionals kickin’ back with some beer and pizza, talking about technology, and making connections. “Making connections” is our mantra for the DZone VIP Meetups and it’s an important theme for our company. We take pride in being a facilitator of developer interaction so that intelligent tech professionals can share ideas and gain insight into new ways of thinking.
So why not have a great DZone event in your hometown? Go to the DZone VIP Meetup page and start one now! And please don’t hesitate to reach out to the DZone team to help you spread the word, provide funds, or send swag.
