NEPA.js is quickly becoming my favorite tech-related event to attend. On Monday night at the Scranton Enterprise Center a solid group of attendees listened and shared in Jason Washo’s presentation on whether or not to handwrite or generate JavaScript through transpiling.

Attending the Wilkes-Barre Programming meetup

On Saturday I braved the frigid temperatures and attended a Wilkes-Barre Programming meetup at the Osterhaut Free Library in downtown Wilkes-Barre.

Attending the Inventor’s Guild at TekRidge

Last night in Jessup at TekRidge, I attended the Inventor’s Guild – another meet up orchestrated by the folks at TecBridge – to meet inventors from the area. The turnout was very good (about 25 or so I’d say) and I’m hoping this event happens again. If you follow me on Twitter you’ll know that […]

Last night I attended an event created by AAF NEPA to help a non-profit organization rebrand. The idea was simple; create a few teams of branding professionals from local agencies and have them compete to create the best ideas and solutions to rebranding a local non-profit company. I’ll leave the details of the competition to […]

Even with the speakers attempting to keep things easy-to-understand I’m sure the flood of information can be overwhelming. I think that is why the mix of presentations at these sorts of events is so important. It […]
