Develop and Innovate with Vision is the title we fit to an acronym that all web devs could appreciate. We saw around 40 student web devs gather together last night on the CU campus for DIV’s first meeting (Granted free pizza always guarantees a crowd on campus). We’re pretty excited that this is the first of many events that will really establish CU’s competence as a source of startup dev talent!
The crowd was filled with bright kids and some awesomely technical conversations that have me really excited to see what projects might be cooking up. During the meeting both speakers, John Fiala on Drupal and David Dango held great discussions with the crowd that more than expanded my wordpress-only knowledge of using a CMS.
We also took the suggestion given @ the last newtech meetup to color code nametags, complete with Andrew’s special color for “don’t talk to me”. We had fun with that..
Stay tuned for some great hacking @ the CU dev community. If you’re a fun startup in need of a young hacker ping us @ cudiv.com or stop by for a plug. We’ll be keeping this up on the last Wednesday of each month @ 6pm on campus, so say Hi!
P.S. Any local tech experts want to speak next month?
