June 25, 2020
We couldn’t bear the thought of a Thursday in June without an evening dedicated to celebrating everything that makes MA the vibrant tech industry it is today. Now more than ever, we want to bring our tech community together to connect, celebrate, and learn about the amazing companies that exist in our backyard. But really, this year it is in your own backyard. Or home office, or kitchen, or wherever is best for you to unplug for a bit and take some time to meet new people (virtually) and join in activities such as barre exercise, a code party, pictionary, mixology lessons, and a live hack, etc.
