SBY TechConnect

This Eastern Shore event is where entrepreneurs, techies, developers, designers, business people, and interested people see showcases on cool new technology in a demo format and interact with each other . “Show and Tell for Adults” is what we usually say. No boring presentations or speakers who drone on. This is a “show and tell” format where we tell people to show me, don’t tell me about the great things they are working on. Each TechConnect begins at 5:30pm and goes until 6:30am (although people usually hang around later) and is held every third Wednesday of the month.

Startup Weekend Delmarva Meetup

This is a group interested in scheduling and executing periodic Startup Weekend events.  Startup Weekends are 54-hour weekend events, during which groups of developers, business managers, startup enthusiasts, marketing gurus, graphic artists and more pitch ideas for new startup companies, form teams around those ideas, and work to develop a working prototype, demo, or presentation by Sunday evening.

Eastern Shore Coders Club Meetup

A group for programmers on the eastern shore to get together to hang out and share ideas, code, projects, and whatever else they find interesting at the moment.

Eastern Shore Innovators

The Eastern Shore Innovators are a group of like-minded individuals who are interested in creating something original.
