Beginning November 7, New Orleans will have a tech-focused happy hour every other Tuesday for the rest of the year. Tech Tuesdays: A Free Happy Hour Series was created by Online Optimism for business owners and professionals to network and learn tech hacks, tips, and tricks from leaders in the tech community in New Orleans.
Organizers said each Tech Tuesdays event will feature two short 15-minute educational talks or demonstrations, networking, light bites and beverages including beer and wine at 1100 Saint Andrew Street.
“Being a part of the growing tech and entrepreneurial community gives us the opportunity to meet people who are doing amazing things here in New Orleans every day,” said Flynn Zaiger, CEO of Online Optimism. “We wanted to be able share this with the community so we hand selected some of the people we admire most to take part in our first Tech Tuesdays series.”
The first Tech Tuesdays is all about new media and will feature Online Optimism’s Design Director Juan Pablo Madrid, Social Media Strategist Meara McNitt, and Adriana Lopez, founder of NOLA Business Media. All four Tech Tuesdays events are free and open to the first 30 guests who RSVP at techtuesdaysnola.com.
