This Week in NYC Apps (July 29 – Aug. 2)
— Whether you are just starting to pursue your dream of creating the next big app, or you’ve been grinding through code for months, it’s beneficial to get out and network, and there might not be a better place in the world to network right now than New York City. Silicon Alley isn’t just a few blocks in the city anymore. It’s a city-wide concept that is gaining momentum every day.
So, if you happen to live in the city that never sleeps, step away from the development every once in awhile and meet your brethren in the tech community. One of Appular’s most important responsibilities is keeping track of the best meetups in NYC, and we’re here to point you in the right direction no matter where you are in your project’s development. Who knows, you could meet your co-founder or next angel investor while you’re out and about.
Before we take a look at the upcoming week of exciting meetups, let’s look back at last week and highlight what lured designers, developers and entrepreneurs away from their workspaces last week.
Getting off the Ground: Finding Your Tech Co-Founder & Building an Amazing Team
Suits to Silicon Alley put on this fantastic event to give entrepreneurs an opportunity to hear how a panel from different areas in tech formed their teams and turned their dreams into reality. The panel featured CTO of Single Platform Randy Jimenez, founder and CEO of Shoptiques Olga Vidisheva and Fueled founder Rameet Chawla. The three panelists imparted wisdom on the audience and provided tips and tricks that helped them get their ventures off the ground.
A Look Ahead:
How to Build an App: From Ideation to Launch
The NYC Mobile App Support Group will put on this event to help show entrepreneurs the way when it comes to building an app or creating software. The discussion aims to help guests understand the lifecycle, scale and sustainability of a tech project. This team of techies have broken down the process into four steps: planning, design/development, Q/A and launch. The event starts at 7 p.m. July 30 on the second floor of Jack Doyle’s (restaurant and pub) at 240 W. 35th in midtown.
Summer Mixer for NYC Entrepreneurs
Sometimes it’s great to hear from established industry professionals, and other times it’s nice to walk around, enjoy a cold beverage and network with like-minded people. That’s what the North Brooklyn Breakfast Club is providing with this event. Hosted from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. July 30 at the Village Pourhouse (64 3rd Ave.), entrepreneurs in tech and all kinds of small-business owners are invited to network, have a few drinks and network some more.
Vets in Tech Happy Hour
After the historic surge in young military recruits in the early 2000s, the U.S. has seen hundreds of thousands of veterans enter the workforce, and the tech space is no different. These men and women bring discipline, great work ethic and a strong moral compass to the tech landscape, and the Military Veterans in Tech group is hosting this networking event to connect the community. You don’t have to be a veteran to attend, just make sure you’re looking to meet some new people and that you have an appetite for pizza and beer! The event starts at 6:30 p.m. July 31 at 915 Broadway on the 19th floor.
