Next Thursday, Hashrocket will be headed to downtown Jacksonville to join KYN in welcoming two veteran talents for an evening of speaking & learning. Plus, it's going to be hosted in Jacksonville's historic Barnett Building. Here are the pertinent details:
The speakers of note will be Mig Reyes and Javan Makhmali, designer and developer (respectively) of Basecamp (formerly 37Signals). They'll be speaking about a topic near and dear to our hearts at Hashrocket: collaboration between design and development.
In addition to a top-tier speaker lineup, DES+DEV: ASSEMBLE! will also feature:
- A social hour with local designer & developer groups
- Demos from KYN apprentices featuring their food truck app "Truck'n'Seek"
- The KYN Apprentice Graduation After-Party featuring local food trucks
Plus, you'll be treated to the epic interiors of the historic Barnett Building, which is in the midst of a complete restoration and has some of the most gorgeous elevators you'll ever see. (No, really.)
We're partnering with KYN for this event – KYN is the premiere startup incubator in downtown Jacksonville, and features a couple of Hashrocket alumni at the helm. This is just the latest in a growing list of meetups & events they've been hosting in downtown Jax.
tl;dr: DES + DEV: ASSEMBLE is Thursday, May 15 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. Tickets are $20, but you can use the promo code HASHROCKET to save 50%. Seats are limited, so get moving (and hey, feel free to pass on the link):
We're thrilled to be part of this event, and hope to see you there. Just look for anybody in a Hashrocket t-shirt and come say hi!
