Webby Hour: It’s no Thirsty Thursday, but the meeting of College Web Designers and Developers on Wednesday is probably a better use of your time (and money, considering the event is held at beer emporium Max’s Taphouse). The group hasn’t met in awhile, so Wednesday’s meeting will be a time to come up with ideas for future events while enjoying a pint or two during happy hour. Wednesday, Aug. 22, 7:30 p.m. Max’s Taphouse, 737 S. Broadway, Fells Point, Baltimore city 21231. RSVP. FREE.

Wednesday, Aug. 22, 7:30 p.m. Max’s Taphouse, 737 S. Broadway, Fells Point, Baltimore city 21231. RSVP. FREE.

UnWIREd: As Greater Baltimore Technology Council’s Jason Hardebeck puts it, the purpose of the UnWIREd unconference is to “socialize and communicate some of the cool stuff happening around and the people that are working on it, and then to really look at and create a framework of future [minimum viable products] to prove or disprove ideas to do something.” The overarching goal? How Baltimore can use technology to improve the city and the region. Educators, policy makers, technologists, data wonks, creative-class types and people who just give a damn are encouraged to attend. Friday, Aug. 24, 2 p.m. Johns Hopkins University, 3400 N.
