It’s the Jessica Lawrence era! Since the New York Tech Meetup hired a managing director, we’ve noticed upgrades to the website, including the fact that NYTM is now posting agendas before the event with the names of apps and their presenters, an improvement over the paper agendas we used to get at the door. There’s also now a video archive, although the Livestream is still not working.
Demos on deck range from food, drinks, stories, tasks and an “open source framework for creating machine vision appliances.” Sweet! We’ve written about some of them before–Gojee, CalorieCount and Onepager–but others are news to us. Full lineup is below.
