#BigDOCC! Talk Tech, Startups and Digital Lifestyle

You wake up every morning, filled with excitement about the technology news of the day. Wouldn't it be great if you could surround yourself once a week with people just as excited about tech as you are? Imagine a one hour chat, moderated of course, with people that love talking tech because they're passionate about it? Breakfast burritos and free coffee too?

That's exactly why #BigDOCC was founded. To give people like us a place to open up and be the people we love to be.

Bring a friend and enhance the value for everyone.

See you soon.

Open Source Saturday

Register here

We are a group of some serious, and some not-so-serious, geeks that want to see the Open Source Ethos spread and help as many people as will let it.  During the meetings, which are pretty much an excuse to get together and have fun, we catch up on topical and industry news, projects, code releases, recent technical problems and solutions...

There are sometimes presentations - anything open source but if it is software then running on more than 1 platform is preferred (Linux, Mac, Win, etc.).  Mobile is an exception due to Apple's refusal to let FOSS code onto their IOS platform - so we talk about Android a lot more.

I you have an itch to scratch that can be solved by technology, bring it on in!  You well always get an educated opinion and sometimes a useful answer too.  The group is not homogeneous around one specific technology, or industry, or language or nationality.  What we have in common is our desire to make our lives better, and the set of people in "our" is everyone, everywhere.

Join us afterwards for lunch! Hope you have a hunger for adventure. ;)
